We’re thinking about going to the National Mall (because when will be in Washington, DC again during the Fourth of July?) but I don’t know if we have the patience for people.What are your plans for the Fourth of July?

  1. All these years living near DC and we’ve never gone for the fireworks. I can’t stand the crowds either.Happy 4th to you guys too! … When are you off to the next destination? Are you trying to learn the destination language yet? It’ll be hard to hold onto your Spanish without daily practice 😦


  2. Tambien estoy perdiendo mi español. Tomé clases de español hace un año, ¡pero estoy perezosa y no lo he usado mucho! Buena suerte para ti 🙂


  3. We went to see the fireworks on the mall last year and everyone was blocking my view by holding up their iPads to tape it. Gone are the days of my childhood when we would park in the pentagon parking lot and sit on the grassy hill for a lovely view of the fireworks, while playing with sparklers.
