We're in D.C....

Washington, D.C. that is.
The Cherry Blossom Festival is in full swing and today was the Kite Festival.

If you look closely, 
you can see hundreds of kites in the sky above the National Mall.

 Master kite flyers, kids and families from all over filled the sky with fun, colorful kites.

And here we are holding up the Washington Monument...


No worries, we survived just fine...and look, someone's got to do it!!

Tomorrow, we will see what's left of the Cherry Blossoms,
they are way past prime viewing but from what I did see today, we are still in for a real treat!!

  9. Yay! I love DC! Crazy that the cherry blossoms are past prime already. I don't think I've seen an earlier spring.
