25 weeks and growing...

Next up...30 weeks!

Cherry Blossom Festival 2009

It was windy, but a great day. We had sunny, 60 degree weather. It was so nice. Matter of fact, so nice we each got a nice sunburn! Yup! It was super crowded and windy, so we didn't hang around the basin where the blossoms are for too long. There was a point when we were inching by on the trail around the basin and decided this is dumb....we can see the trees, and it would take us hours just to walk around the entire basin at that speed.
Later we met up with some friends of ours and headed to Pennsylvania Avenue and checked out the Festival. We had missed the parade in the morning, because we did not expect the metro station to be so jam packed of people, it took 30 minutes or so to even get the ticket. Crazy!! Of course, that should have been ou first clue...
Here are a few pics...

The crowd at the festival in the streets.

Jefferson Memorial across the basin. Very crowded over there too.
