Every year we brave the crowd and head downtown to claim a small plot of grass on the Great Lawn to watch the air show and Thunder fireworks. This year the weather was perfect and the crowd was intense. My mom came into town with my brother, Aaron and his girlfriend, Heather. We were able to get a great parking place at Jeff's work, just 6 blocks from the waterfront. The kids did great and we all had a good time. There was a slight delay in the fireworks due to a computer malfunction, but after about 15 minutes, we were rewarded with an awesome display.
