Fourth of July in the Yoop

For the Fourth of July this year we did the 2nd Annual Tighe family cabin stay with fireworks in Escanaba. Another highlight was Mike's 20th high school reunion (which makes him officially old now!). More on that later.
We watched the parade in Gladstone, full of local floats, politicians, insurance companies, and veterans. The Escanaba city band played in the band, shown in the movie below.
videoThat night we went to the fireworks down on Lake Michigan (Escanaba), where the city band played patriotic tunes in the bandshell. Most all the siblings came to Esanaba first, as well as the Berkeley Tighes and Cousin Colleen's kids who were visiting from Washington. The kids had a great time warming up for the big fireworks with smoke bombs and the waterballoon launcher at the house. Dominic seemed to get a real kick out of Cousin Dave.
