4th of July, Indiana style

Since 2008, my girlfriend Tanya has been having a 4th of July party here in Valpo. Since she knows how much I enjoy barbecuing and blowing things up, I have been in charge of the grill and the fireworks. These photos are from our 4th Annual 4th of July Extravaganza. Good food, good company and fireworks makes for a great day. Thanks to Tanya for taking some of the firework photos for me. Back to 4th of July Photos Back to 4th of July Photos

Preparing for the 4th of July

Combine that with the fact that my girlfriend lives here, it is not too difficult a decision to make. When I fly in, the first stop is always the Phantom Fireworks in Chesterton. This video is of the final display of my 4th Annual Fireworks Show.

July Picture of the Day Begins

We are only at the 4th Day of July, and already this month has been action packed. Let’s play a little catch-up on my picture of the day thus far. On Day 182 my friends took me out for an early birthday dinner at my favorite spot, Gu Gu Sushi and Roll. We then headed over to Hollywood Park to see Devo in concert. Really fun show and the price is great. If you live in the LA area you might want to check out the concert action at Hollywood Park. I was up bright and early the next day …
