The 4th of July was pretty fun.
To start off, my family went to Pacifica to buy fireworks. This is something we hadn't done in years. We only spent $10 because fireworks aren't cheap in California, but it was more than enough.
Later in the evening, Dad and I cooked some corn on the cob on our rusty old grill that we hadn't touched in ages. However, time had taken its toll: the grill broke apart as soon as we finished cleaning it. Let's just say we probably won't be using it again.
I lit the fireworks after the sun went down. This was the best part of the evening even though we only had a small bag. The 4th of July has always been one of my favorite holidays for this reason.
The not-so-fun part is that I had to return to Berkeley afterwards. It was almost midnight when I got back to Unit 2 because we didn't leave our house until 10 p.m. I'm not going to lie - an extra day off or two would have been nice. In any case, I hope you all had a nice and safe 4th of July weekend!

The impactor from the Deep Impact spacecraft hit the comet Tempel 1 this morning. That was definitely really cool.
