We had a really nice weekend. We were lazy on Saturday, I dragged myself from bed to go to synagogue, then I relaxed around the pool for a bit. Sunday it was really rainy (read pouring most of the day) and we were pretty nervous our annual tradition of going to the Kensico Dam for fireworks would be rained out. But, the sun will come out
tomorrow by nightfall. So we were off to the dam!
The dam is right off the center of the county. They built the 9/11 memorial on the exact center of the county and it's always nice to walk around it each year and remember those who died on 9/11. And to remember the freedoms that we are so privileged to enjoy in this country. Not to mention the memorial is simply stunning.
I competed in the relay races. First jumping in and swimming to the shallow end and back, then swimming a lap with noodles at our feet and arms (harder than it sounds), and then while wearing a sopping wet t-shirt (insanely hard!). It was a fun way to spend the day and a really great way to stay cool.
Then we decided to be lazy and stay in and get front row seats to two amazing firework shows, the one in NY and the one in Boston. Next year I am hoping for watching the Boston show in person!
