4th of July

I’m a little behind on my personal pictures, so happy 4th of July, just a few weeks late! 🙂
I was able to enjoy the fireworks from the White House lawn thanks to my friend Tracy. It was so nice not to battle the crowds on the mall, and the grass was a lot thicker and softer! And, the weather was actually pleasant for a change! It was a beautiful evening all around.

Part of the pre-fireworks entertainment.
The Oval Office with the Rose Garden to the right.
The President and his guests come out on the balcony for the fireworks. Note the sharp-shooters on the roof. They also stand along the edges of the lawn in the bushes and can be a bit startling if you walk close before realizing they are there!
