We are so fortunate to live just about an hour's drive from Washington DC. Every year, I say I want to make it down to see the Cherry Blossoms in bloom and every year our schedule or the weather prevents us from actually going. When we woke up to sunshine on Sunday and a forecast of temperatures in the high 50's, we scrapped our plans to get things done around the house, packed some snacks and jumped in the car.
It was a great way to spend the afternoon. I'll share a few of the many photos I took yesterday and I encourage anyone who is able to make the trip to put it on their bucket list.
First, here's some info from the National Park Service about these beautiful Cherry trees and their springtime blossoms and the website for the Cherry Blossom Festival.
|Pretty backdrop and 2 out of 3 kids willing to look at the camera!|
|A few "I-can-squish-the-Washington Monument" shots!|
|The kids love Teddy Roosevelt in the Night at the Museum movies, so we always stop at Theodore Roosevelt Island for a vist!|
