Happy Memorial Day Eve. Last night we went to the dress rehearsal of the National Memorial Day Concert. (the dress rehearsal is much less crowded and other don't mind my squirmy little pinks running around) It is on the lawn right in front of the Capitol. There are many famous faces who come out along with tears from almost everyone watching
I seriously thought Mr. Pink (the non cryer) was going to start crying when
The amazing part of the concert was at the end when they play each song from each branch of the military and have those who have served or are serving stand up. With Mr. Pink serving in the Army I always get a little teary when this happens.
The concert also tells stories and has photos from Walther Reed Army medical center that are touching and great for my girls to see more about where their Dad works.
So click here to check your locals listings to tape or watch the memorial concert. (I think it will be on a few times over the next few days on PBS)
Off to watch the sun set at the Iwo Jima memorial and overlook at the flags at Arlington. How much am I going to miss this city when we move?
