Happy Independence Day!

Our 4th started off with Chris playing softball and kickball at the ward breakfast, then he played some mad tennis shortly after. I got some much needed rest and went over later to watch them all play.

The past 2 4th of July's we would go on the roof of Chris' work building to see the National fireworks. This year Chad was able to get us onto the Pentagon garden/grass area to watch them. We figured we needed to leave early since there are a bazillion people who work at the Pentagon and would take advantage of the free lawn. It started raining the minute we got into the car! Luckily we had some huge umbrellas, and we could drive really close to the Pentagon.

We walked through the Pentagon tunnel...


By the time we got there after a long long walk we found out we could park right next to the lawn. Chad was nice enough to go back and get the car for us. We could not even believe how little people there were. We got a perfect spot on the lawn!

Here is Chris sitting on the cooler.


While we were waiting for Chad to return we played a game of Scrabble, it was a lot of fun. When Chad returned he was able to get us into the Pentagon to tour around. While we were inside is started to downpour!

We took some sneaky shots in front of the Secretary of Defense's office.



We had a blast playing Pounce, Liars Dice and getting snacks! Despite all of the rain, it was so fun to watch the fireworks. Luckily the rain stopped right before they started. We hope you all had a happy 4th!
