What is better than a Fourth recap a week after the actual Fourth? Absolutely nothing that’s what.
Our day started out with a quick run down at the trail — the weather was perfect! After that we headed to the store to get some meat to smoke, because what else do you do on a national patriotic holiday? We smoked chicken wings and big ole pork butt.
After that, we blew up our gangsta blow-up pool and relaxed in it ..the whole damn day. After baking in the sun all day — we packed up a few drinks, our portable grill, our tailgate chairs and headed downtown to stake out a spot for the Thunder on the Mountain fireworks show over Vulcan.
Then onto the Blue Monkey for me to try scotch for the first time — it was flipping terrible. Luckily, the lovely foreign bartender knew exactly what I should be drinking, and he made that for me. Then at least I got to enjoy my post-firework beverage.

It was definitely an awesome day. Hope everyone had a great Fourth remembering exactly why we get to celebrate in freedom every year!
