Our Trip to Washington - Part 1
2 weeks ago we snuck the kids out of school for 2 days to take them to Gettysburg & Washington DC. It just so happened that it was the peak weekend for the cherry blossoms and the festival was in full swing.
Our first stop was the Capitol ....we arrived Fri night& popped into the city to see the sites all lit up.
dinner in Chinatown after seeing the Capitol!
Saturday morning we headed back to the Mall to visit the Smithsonian and the monuments. Sunny but cold & WINDY! When we arrived the groups were lining up for the Cherry Blossom Parade - we got to see a really fun battle of the bands, te Cherry Blossom Queen and lots of other fun groups....
stay tuned for part 2!
