Proud to be an American!

Today was Selah's first 4th of July, so we celebrated in traditional fashion. We attended the Arlington parade in the morning with our good friends, Jason and Katherine, and their son Jack. We managed to make it there without a single chair or blanket for sitting (Rhode's scholars, I know!), so we enjoyed the show from the curb. We had a great time with our friends, but I must say I the parade itself left something to be desired. I expected a little more out of a city of 300,000+!

We wrapped up the day with burgers, potato salad, and baked beans (YUM!) and Terry and I enjoyed the NYC firework show after getting Selah in bed by her usual 7pm.
