Though we've been living in DC for three years, this is the first time Jeff and I have actually been in the city over Fourth of July.
For lunch, we met up with Neera and Shreyas, who were in town for a conference. It was really fun to see them - Neera lives in Illinois and Shreyas is near Toronto, so we don't see them often.
They told Jeff and I about this hilarious (and sad) verizon phone call... yikes:
To celebrate, our friends Emma and Beth came over for dinner - Jeff cooked stuffed eggplant. After dinner, we walked down to the National Mall.
The fireworks on the Mall were awesome!
