Here Comes the BOOM…


As you all know, Fourth of July is upon us. And like all good Americans, I’m sure the majority of you are going to either be getting drunk out of your minds, eating stomach combusting amounts of BBQ, playing with colorful explosives, or doing all three of these things at the same time.

Helpful Tip of the Day: Do not drink while playing with things that can potentially light you on fire. Nobody wants to see a human firework, or do they? hmmm….

Now, I’m no expert, but I have experienced my fair share of Fourth of July hullabaloo. And last year, I decided to stop by the Aquarium of the Pacific‘s Red, White, and Blue Ocean (corny much) celebration. If you haven’t been there before, definitely check it out. Hanging out with animals always makes for a fun day. A few highlights of the day include…

The Animal Friends I Made:


I will forever have a place in my heart for that emperor penguin. He was just such a sharp dresser. 😉

The Amazing Food:


The ceviche was definitely my favorite item there. It was so yummy and refreshing on a hot summer day. There was plenty of food to go around throughout the entirety of the BBQ, which was awesome for someone like me who always goes for tenths…yes I said tenths! One thing I should mention if you happen to go to this event, is that the seating goes quickly, so try to get there right when the BBQ starts.

And last highlight…bum ba da dum…

Bird Attack:

I told him to just give up the nectar, but nooooooooo. I’m glad to report no birds or humans were injured in the process.

All in all, this was a fun Fourth of July. No matter what you decide to do for your Fourth of July celebration, remember to have fun, make memories, and be safe!
