The 4th of July

I am really cool and have absolutely no pictures from the fourth of July. Kyle and I went rafting on the American River and I wasn't going to bring the camera. I didn't need a wet camera. We had a great time rafting down the river. Bringing down the raft to the actual water entrance wasn't as fun though. They said you could attach the raft to the top of the car but clearly that was impossible so we carried it ourselves, all the way down to the water. After a good sweat, and few harsh words we finally got it down to the water. Good ol' team work, sort of.

The water was packed, but we sill had a fun, relaxing ride. I was surprised that it was as cool as it was. The cool air made the ride way more bearable considering it has been crazy hot around here lately. We also had some entertainment as we floated down the river. Two drunk guys got into a big fight on one of the shores. Everyone was just starring at them as they floated down the water. Strangely enough, there was a alcohol ban on the river because alot of people got hurt in the past. So when we saw the guys fighting we were hoping the millions of cops that were floating down the river, would actually stop them. No such luck, oh well it was still entertaining.

Later that night we went to the Roseville fireworks and they were not quite up to par. They were less than 20minutes long. Roseville must have had some budget cuts! Thank goodness we saw some really great fireworks the weekend before. Rocklin was a bit more equipped for the festivities.
