We had a fun Fourth. We drove up to DC (with no traffic, it's about 2 hours from my doorstep to my sister's) and spent the day up there. My mom and sister had some Annalise time while my BIL took me, DH and the boys around. We drove around for a bit first because of the heat, but a lot of streets were blocked for the festivities. We decided on going to the Natural History Museum part of the Smithsonian and spent all afternoon there. There were SOOOO many people there, but we had a good time. Then we had a cookout, and when it got dark, walked to a part of the neighborhood where we could view the fireworks in DC (my sister lives just outside of DC and their townhouse community is up on a hill). After the fireworks were done, we booked it out of town to beat the traffic coming out of DC. It was nice because DH was able to join us. We're both really getting tired of his schedule.
Hope everyone else had a fun day! Sarah, does Australia have an Australia Day or Independence Day too?
