4th of July...it has always been one of my favorite holidays. 3 whole days off from work...who can beat that! I had a relaxing morning and then met my friend Melissa down in Fells Point for a late lunch. We had thought that going to Fort McHenry would be the patriotic thing to do today, however any of of chances of doing so were quickly dashed when we literally got stuck in the middle of a parade on our drive over. On somewhat of a whim, we met up with another friend, Lauri, and headed down to the chaos of Washington D.C for the celebrations. All in all, it was a great day and being in the nation's capital on the 4th of July is almost as amazing as being in Boston (fireworks and the Boston Pops on the Esplanade will always be the best 4th of July destination).
