Here at Old Town Home, our proximity to our nation's capital gives us a little extra incentive to celebrate the birth of The United States. Ever since we moved to DC in 2000, we've always made a point to be in the area on the 4th of July. There's just something about being in Washington, DC on Independence Day that I can't really explain. It's a sense of pride for what we are a part of every day.
So today, like every other year since our migration from Cleveland to Alexandria, we'll be making our annual trip to the National Mall to watch one of the best fireworks displays I can imagine. With a backdrop of the Washington Monument and US Capitol, and the Lincoln Memorial at our backs, we'll sit and watch fireworks in the sweltering heat along with thousands of other people...and we'll love it.
Here is a short video from last year's fireworks display that should give you a taste of what we love to watch.
Obviously, a video can't do justice to being there and feeling the fireworks as they explode. In person, it's literally breathtaking.
We'll be back tomorrow with a bit of house progress that's made Wendy smile, but until then, if you're celebrating, we hope you have a wonderful 4th of July holiday with your friends and family. Be safe, everyone.
