Post #300 - Happy Early 4th of July!

Unfortunately this weekend I will not be celebrating the 4th of July in the nation's capitol. But I can't say that I'm really all that unhappy about it. Instead I will be in CA celebrating the wedding of one of my best college friends. This of course means that I will also be spending some time with my parents and with my high school friends.

To make up for not being here for the fourth of July I was taken to the sunset parade at the United States Marine Corps Memorial (Iwo Jima Memorial) last night. First off there was music by the United States Marine Drum and Bugle Corps followed by a precision drill performance by the Marine Corps Silent Drill Platoon. It was incredible. Below is a picture from the Marines

If you look closely enough you will see that the two guns are actually in the air. If you are ever in DC on a Tuesday evening between Memorial Day and Labor Day you have to check this out, cause words can't describe just how incredible the whole routine is.

Oh yeah, and this is post #300 for my little blog. Can you believe it?!

Woo-hoo for post 300! Have fun at Jen's wedding -- I am sure it will be excellent (and say hi to the rest of the SB gang for me!).
