July 4th

I will detail the Crossfit Daily Medicine July 4th smack down in a separate post, but suffice it to say, I was working on one hour of sleep post night shift.  These crazy sunglasses were mostly to hide the giant bags under my eyes.

After the workout, I powered through without napping fueled by friendship, wine and a sparklingly clear day.  We sipped Brad and Angelina's crisp rose while watching the kids try out Sophie's new throwing knives.  It took them no time at all to destroy two pizza boxes taped together, but I fear we are not yet ready for the zombie apocalypse.

The dinner menu was a mix of American and Korean with kalbi, Brookville Hotel coleslaw, potato salad, burrata with tomatoes, pumpkin cheesecake and blueberry slab pie.

Even though we were able to get to and from the fireworks last year in under 3 hours, I was way too tired to contemplate the slog on the metro this year.  We settled for sparklers in the backyard.

Happy Birthday America!
