Benefits of Experience

Last year, on the 3rd of July Linzy and I went over to Brenden and Allison's apartment to enjoy a tasty dinner and the Bloomington Fireworks. We did the same thing this year, and it was just as fun.

We went over to the apartment after work and enjoyed one of Brenden's terrific deep-dish pizzas. Afterwards we tried out the cooperative boardgame Pandemic. That was a huge hit, particularly with Linzy, even if it was not particularly suspenseful in terms of there being any question that we were going to be victorious.

By that point it was time to go over to the Normandale Office Park to see the fireworks. Drawing on our vast store of experience with the Bloomington fireworks and where they would be launched from, we were able to get much better seats then we had last year. We were further away from the actual launch area, but had a much less obstructed view. The fireworks display was impressive, and lengthy. They had a variety of fireworks, including some that produced geometric shapes and lots of multi-stage ones.

It was nice to be able to see the whole fireworks display this year, and it turned out to be a great evening.
