Fireworks at North Avenue Beach

My friend Brianne asked if I wanted to go to the beach to see the fireworks Monday, and I’m so glad I went. I was afraid it was going to be crowded beyond belief, but we actually got a really great place by the lake and had plenty of room to spread out a couple blankets. Everyone was a good sport about my apparent need to document my first Fourth of July fireworks in Chicago (technically second, but I was an eleven-year-old tourist the first time).

It’s been a pretty awesome summer so far, you guys.
