I was in DC for 4 days. On my first day there Rachel and I went to the Newseum which you can read about here. On Friday and Saturday it was all about the cherry blossoms (and the monuments and eating and drinking)! So the photos below will be a mix from both days which is why I have on different outfits.
Tidal Basin with big plans for the day. We ended up just sitting and enjoying the view for a while. Despite the crowds it was so beautiful and relaxing. Oh and don't worry because we ended up walking about 10 miles after our relaxing!
Cherry Blossom Festival has an "official" poster. I read about it online and knew I had to have one as my memento from the trip. I noticed that the artist, Evelia Sowash, was signing the posters on Saturday afternoon and I had a mission to find her. Well despite the numerous volunteers and staff NOBODY knew what the heck I was talking about. I was beginning to think I was crazy and had made it up. Of course our cell phones were hardly working since there were SO many people! I finally got a website to open up and found the location of where she was. We hiked on over and I was lucky enough to meet her! I love the poster and can't wait to get a frame for it so I can hang it up.
As I mentioned
If you made it this far congrats! I know I took way too many photos of the cherry blossoms but I couldn't help it. They were all so beautiful. Believe me I have a lot more that I'm not sharing on my blog. The ones in this post are my favorites!
More DC Vacation posts to come. . . Monuments, Arlington, Georgetown and Where We Ate!
Linking up with Kristin and you should too!
