July 4, 2011 – 4th in DC

Since Linda and I had to wake up at O’dark thirty to get Linda to the airport (3:30 am), we were not thrilled about driving to fireworks, so the kids lit snakes and sparklers outside with the fireflies.┬á Claire, however, had a different experience.

There was the parade down Constitution Avenue and here’s Claire’s perch in front of the National Archives.

I’m glad she filmed the finale of the fireworks – probably better than what we might have seen!
