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!

Mama and her ducklings in the Refecting Pool

The Lincoln Memorial


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.

My son-in-law and grandsons looking from the Lincoln Memorial.

The Hope Diamond.

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.
