America the Beautiful

Oh hey! Did you know America had a birthday?
I spent the day celebrating with my friends Sarah and Kelsey.

Sarah is singing with this band "Windfall" that was performing at a block party, so Kelsey and I crashed it to support her.

She's pretty much amazing and we decided she sounds like Ariel... Lucky...

The band is such a mix of characters. Each of them have their own uniqueness that makes it so fun to watch them perform. (seriously, i wish you could see them!)

Here is one of Sarah's solos:

After the show we headed on top of a plateau to watch the fireworks.

We originally sat at the edge of the car and settled in to watch...

But when we learned that the city had set up a radio station to broadcast the music that matched the show, we couldn't help but stand up and dance around as the fireworks went off. Plus, they were going off from different places all around the city, so we would turn in circles to make sure we caught them all.


It was such a good night and fun way to spend celebrating America's Birthday!
