Cherry Blossom time!

Today was gorgeous, it the first real Spring day since we’ve been back.  We saw it coming and decided to try our chances in the city for the annual Cherry Blossoms.  Boy did we get lucky (even more so because its supposed to rain for the next few days!). We parked near the Bureau of Engraving (where they print the money) and walked over to the Jefferson Memorial and walked the Tidal Basin, it was beautiful!

Sophia had a ball, from the first minute when she posed with a ranger and the Cherry Blossom beaver?  (this was a new one on me) but it seemed official and more than that they all waved so I had to share

And when we got to the Jefferson Memorial…there was a band!  You know that for our kid this means dancing!  Luckily she found some friends..kidsdancecherry

    We have a picture with that Beaver too but Ryan is not as social as Sophia I guess. He is looking at it scared to death.
