Happy July 5th! Doesn’t sound that exciting…does it???
Did you have to head back to work today or are you off through the weekend? (If this is the case, please don’t answer because I will be super jealous!) It was tough to wake up this morning, but knowing that I only had one day to make it to the weekend, got me through it.
Even though the thermometer read 100 degrees, we braved the heat and headed down to
Comiskey US Cellular Field for a night time White Sox game followed by fireworks.
The good news was that we had club level seats, so there was access to air conditioning as needed.
As the sun went down, the temperature dropped all the way down to 90 degrees.
The game was tied up through the 9th inning until the White Sox scored in extra innings in the bottom of the 10th.
The packed stadium went nuts and the entire crowd was on their feet!!!
It was a late night, but an exciting finish to a long game. And the fireworks made a wonderful and patriotic finale!
After the show, we all piled back down the ramps to exit the stadium. As we were walking out, there was a 360 degree view of fireworks from all the cities and counties around Chicago. It was incredible to see, and people were lining the ramps to watch the impressive shows. We made our way back to the parking lot and 30 minutes later, finally made it to the highway. Shorty after 11pm, we crashed into bed. There were still a few fireworks crashing outside our window, and I was jealous of everyone who got to stay up a little bit and sleep in a little later this morning.
How was your 4th of July? Did you stay up late to watch the fireworks?
