Happy Fourth!

This year we hit up the fireworks display in Princeton (hosted by the "Spirit of Princeton" organization) on Thursday, July 1st.
We had a nice Whole Foods picnic and enjoyed a great show.


Then for the actual Fourth of July we went to DC!
We stayed at the Willard Intercontinental on Pennsylvania Ave.
Very close to the White House... and very near the Mall!









We got to visit the Museum of American History, and see Julia Child's kitchen...




And, just as we were about to get in the elevator at our hotel to go downstairs to see the fireworks, we got invited by the concierge into the "VIP Viewing Area" for the fireworks! It turns out that one of the suites wasn't occupied and guests of the hotel were invited to watch the fireworks in air conditioned comfort! (This was a very nice thing, since when we went downstairs after the Fireworks to get some snacks, it was like Fort Apache The Bronx outside-- people were setting off Roman Candles, people were throwing water balloons from 10 stories up, and there were no police to be seen!) ;)
