This has to be one of the most memorable fourth of July's ever. We decided to get the gang together and go to bolling Air Force Base. Our friend Joanna does this every year with her family. It is across the river from the Washington monument. I like to think of it as a little well kept secret. We got down there with the pfeiffers, the foutzs, and the fingers. There is a pool that the kids loved. There was a water slide, a rock wall, and a diving board. We cooled off there for a few hours. Then got all showered and cleaned up. We headed over to the spot were David and nick had claimed our spots earlier while we were swimming. We brought a grill and grilled dinner.
Bolling Air Force base is across the Potomac river( I think that's the river). So we could see the Washington monument, and the capital. There weren't allot of people at all. The kids had fun just playing on the grass. We had the luxury of seeing the fireworks at the monuments with out all the traffic. It was so so awesome. I am so glad that we did this. It will definitely be one that I remember for a long time. It doesn't get more American then being able to see the national fireworks.
