Fireworks in Sugarhouse Park

Saturday night (yes, Saturday, July 3), we went over to Sugarhouse Park to watch the fireworks. I should tell you that this was only a small slice of the park, and this was before it got really crowded. The Salt Lake Tribune estimates the crowd at 30,000.

Our little group (J and R, KP and Charles and Iain and yours truly) walked over with two quilts and a basket full of berries (with sour cream brown sugar dipping sauce. YUM!), some water and the BOB. All went well until the fireworks actually began. Mr. Moose did not enjoy them.

In fact, he considered it bizarre that we were not alarmed by what amounts to artillery going off over our heads. After a few minutes, Charles had to bundle him home. Oh, well. Maybe next year.

[Meanwhile, I've made roasted banana ice cream, lemon ice cream, banana-blueberry sorbet, lemon-buttermilk sherbet, and cherry sorbet. Next stop: chocolate ice cream for Iain.)
