|The Cathedral sustained damage in a 2011 earthquake so various sections were under construction.|

People were getting pretty worn out so we stopped for lunch at Noodles & Co and drove some more through always scenic Georgetown before making our way home for naps. The rule in our house is that every single person is required to nap on the fourth of July as we'll all be up so late. I think almost everyone failed at doing that. Meanwhile, our hosts were sleeping soundly upstairs. Finally, we made a break for the car to go get one more scoop from Dairy Godmother. The moment we left it started to down pour, then moved right on to torrential rains. We continued, undeterred, and got completely soaking wet walking across the street and down two store fronts from our car. The custard, sorbet, and posicle were all delicious and totally worth being sopping wet. Of course the rain cleared not long after and we enjoyed a grilled supper with our hosts before heading to the fireworks.
Yes, we'd already had custard, but clearly still room for frozen yogurt. It is a national holiday, after all.
The kids all played, ran, danced and made up games. It is great to have memories of them here as I come through this airport on every trip.
And that was that. We hopped in the car for a fairly quick ride home and finished packing our bags.
