On Memorial Day, we grilled hamburgers (Delicious!) and then headed into DC to the Air Force Memorial. The Air Force Concert Band was playing at the memorial for Memorial Day and we decided that was something we wanted to experience. I'm so glad we did! It was truly one of the best things we've done since moving up here.

The band is amazingly good and did such a phenomenal job. It was really a special thing to be apart of. We were surrounded by Active-Duty, Veterans, and their families - all of us together for one purpose, to pay respect to the men and women that have served/are serving our Country. The band played patriotic songs, read letters that soldiers sent home during the past wars, told stories, read famous Presidential quotes/speeches.. It was definitely special. This is something that we will attend every year that we are living in this area, and an experience we will never forget.
