We had a good 4th of July weekend, despite the rain. Saturday night we went to my sister's house for my niece's birthday party and then to the Peoria fireworks. Since my office is right on the Riverfront, we have our own fenced in spot on the deck. They were pretty impressive and the crowds and traffic weren't too bad. Sunday was the Hopedale tractor pulls, and it was a beautiful day to sit outside.
