Defender's Day

Saturday we celebrated Defender's Day at Ft. McHenry in Baltimore. Carrie, who has been going for 10 years now, invited us, as well as a few other friends. After we ate our Chipotle burrito picnic, we munched our way through the homemade brownies and cookies everyone else had brought.

The Naval Academy band played, and Francis Scott Key was there! He talked about how emotional it was watching Baltimore defend itself from those nasty Brits in 1814. 

Amanda also came and invited some friends (happily, she has some!). We enjoyed the 1812 overture, complete with canons as well as a great fireworks show o'er the ramparts at the end of the program.
