Independence Day Photo Update

Since we had family from overseas in town over 4th of July, we decided that we should take them to see the DC fireworks. (After we put them to work sorting out our backyard, of course!)

Not wanting to brave the crowds downtown, we instead decided to brave the crowds at Gravelly Point  – the park usually known as a great spot for watching airplanes take-off and land is also a great spot from which to view the National Mall fireworks.

We had an early dinner and then headed out to the park with picnic blankets and snacks in tow. The weather was absolutely gorgeous – a light breeze keeping the mosquitoes away and cool enough to be outside without melting.

We had a great view of the fireworks (both the earlier ones on the hills overlooking the park and the main event). Taking pictures of the fireworks are never as great as actually viewing them, but here are a couple of my best shots.
