4th of July

I know I am Canadian, but being in DC on the 4th of July gives me the greatest American Pride! I went into the city earlier in the day to check out the parade with some of the wives. It was a very random parade with everything from the Back to the Future car to Arthur to the Dalai Lama or something. 


After the parade we went to the National Mall to save a spot for the fireworks. We just hung out and read books and chatted for a few hours while we waited for our husbands to get off work.


While we were waiting, there was a concert by the US Concert Army Band and the US Army Band Downrange followed by country singer Mark Wills (my favorite part of the concert, obviously). It was so much fun! Yes…I got up and shook my booty a lil bit. I mean, how can you not?

This is the crew waiting for the fireworks to start…

I’m pretty sure I said this last year but seriously…if you ever get the chance to go to DC on the 4th, GO!!!! You will not regret it. Promise!
