It was very cool being in the Nation’ capital for the Fourth of July. It seemed like the city doubled in size with people from out of town and their was that patriotic spirit in the air that made you feel very proud to be an American. I really enjoyed spending the morning of Independence Day watching the parade. Pretty standard parade, but again, it was just a little different for me considering how it was my first Independence Day in Washington D.C. Later that night I headed back to the mall, navigated my way through the ocean of people watched the fireworks go off by the Washington Monument. I really did enjoy being in the Capital for the celebration. It was a very different Fourth of July experience then I usually have back home in Milwaukee. And then of course I have to talk about my day off from work. Now, even though the fourth fell on a Sunday this year, Monday was a federal holiday, which meant I got to sleep in and have a good old fashion sit around and do nothing day, something I think everyone needs from time to time.
