July 4th in DC!

I’m not sure why I woke up at 7:20, but I did and stayed awake!

Breakfast was not patriotic, but it was delicious!

This was the last of my two pound bag of cherries…that I bought Friday night. Yikes…

Shortly after breakfast I headed to Chinatown for my Sunday Starbucks. There was someone noticeably absent from my Sunday morning :(

This pigeon walked with me for half a block.

I came prepared with water and a book (which gave me goosebumps when I finished it)!

I had lunch a little after Noon. Organic cucumber from my parents garden, carrots, jalapeno hummus, ww bread with flax margarine, and hummuslaw.

After lunch I headed to the grass patch behind my apartment and did some reading. IT IS SO HOT OUTSIDE!

An Edy’s  lime popsicle was totally necessary!

I took a lot of walks, read a ton and just enjoyed a day with nothing to do.

Until 7:30 when I met up with my college roommate, KJJ, and her boyfriend, AF! They were in town from NY to see the Mets play the Nats!
I took them to Busboys and Poets (my new addiction).

I got the falafel which was good, but not the best thing I’ve ordered.

AF got the Grilled Chicken panini.

And KJJ got the portabella panini!

We each got a beer, Peak’s organic for me and Woodchuck cider for them! After dinner we walked down to the National Mall to meet up with my parents for the FIREWORKS!!

Mom and Dad did a great job of getting us a little square on the Mall :)

The fireworks were short but great. Afterwards, we headed to the grocery store to get ICE CREAM!

Tofutti Cuties! We used to eat a lot of these in college!

The five of us came back to my apartment (ooh A/C), ate our ice cream and reminisced about the past :)

Mom and dad left to take the long train ride home, but KJJ and AF stayed so we could look at pictures and read all the notes I kept from college :)


It was tons of fun! A great 4th of July :)
