Our neighbors host an annual 4th of July block party. This was our first time going, since we moved in July 25th of last year and missed it. Our neighborhood has probably doubled in size over the past year though, so it was great to meet a bunch of new faces. Had a great time catching up with some of our closest friends as well. Here’s a video that I put together, after the event.
Hope everybody had a great 4th of July weekend! I took my quadcopter up for a shot of the Waukee Fireworks show last Saturday night. This was my first aerial fireworks attempt, so things will be better next year. Enjoy
Jordan Creek, in West Des Moines, had their fireworks show a week early this year. We went to enjoy the fireworks with our neighbors. Found a great spot on a hill right across the street.

We relaxed this 4th of July. San Diego’s Big Bay Boom, famous for the big bay blunder in 2012 when all of the fireworks accidentally went off at once, brought tens of thousands of people to the shorefront. We’re not keen on crowds so we opted out and decided to stay in Ramona for the small town Ramona fireworks show at the High School. It was actually a great show with a huge turnout. Next year, we’ll be watching the show at Waukee Centennial Park from the comfort of our own back deck at home.
How did you spend your 4th of July? Hope it was a good one…
