Wolf Trap and "The President's Own"

There is a great National Park here.
It's called Wolf Trap.
And it's a performing arts park.
We spent an evening at a Memorial Day concert and fireworks.
And it was FABULOUS!!
My mom would be jealous.
She probably has more patriotic music than anyone I know.

The performers were the "President's Own Marine Band"
We loved the music - even the boys.
Grandma and Grandpa were there with us.
Grandma even made a new friend and now knows everything there is to know about quilting!
I think she has a sign on her that says -
"Please tell me your life story, especially all the trials."

 The kids especially loved the xylophone.
They are considering playing that - but the drums are still high on their list!

 The fireworks were great and it was an absolutely gorgeous night.
So glad we did this - it may be our new Memorial Day tradition!
We get to go back to Wolf Trap next week with a bunch of our friends.
The Mormon Tabernacle Choir is coming and we are so excited!!

Oh my goodness your kids are getting so big! I need a serious trip out to DC so I can give them all a big hug and maybe threaten a kiss on the cheek just so I can hear their reaction! Wow do I miss them and you and Ryan as well!
