A Beautiful Day in Our Nation's Capital.

We are lucky in that we are a short distance away from Washington, DC.  This weekend was part of the Cherry Blossom Festival, but unfortunately, the blossoms were not in bloom just yet.  However, it was still a beautiful day and so much beauty was present.

Enjoy the pictures!


The weeping cherry trees were gorgeous!

The Washington Monument and Reflecting Pool from the Lincoln Memorial.  I can't help but be reminded of the scene from Forrest Gump when I see this.

I love this picture!  Not for the mummy, but my grandson's reflection as he is trying to figure this out.


The Castle


Washington is a beautiful city and one day is not enough to take it all in.  Also, I HIGHLY recommend taking the Metro into the city...parking can be very difficult.
