A verrrrrry warm 4th of July firework viewing. Our group opted to stay on this side of the Potomac to avoid the massive crowds. Yes, we had crowds at Arlington, but not quite as much. The downside was we didn't get to hear the music.
We sat on the hill below the Iwo Jima monument.
There were cicadas, fireflies, and one SUPER excited toddler behind us. I thought he was going to faint with joy by the time the actual fireshow started.
Lying very stil under smoldering July skies.
