We went to a BBQ with Adrian’s parents for the 4th. The fireworks over the National Mall were a few miles away and very pretty and the BBQ was wonderful.
The next day Amy’s cast came off, and we left town to visit Amy’s parents at their cabin in Northeast Pennsylvania. We had a nice date night on the lake, hosted a dinner party for some local friends, and Adrian went for a nice hike (Amy’s ankle is almost better). Two naturalists led the hike; they showed us some of the oldest rhododendron in the world.
