This is not us getting blown up on the Mall.

We stayed with our parents. Nothing funny happened. We were planning to go see Emily play soccer, but then we heard that she wouldn't be at the Washington game. So now the WUSA is out five adult admission prices. If they have to disband the league for lack of $98, it's because the Atlanta coach decided not to play Emily Burt on the second of July. We went to The Mall (yes, that's The Mall as in the center of Washington, D.C.) to watch the fireworks. We didn't get blown up, but we did get to see Chuck Berry and Aretha Franklin. And some things blowing up in the sky, but those were intentional, and done by our side. Also, it was really hot. If it isn't one thing, it's another.
