Anyways, due to fact that we might not be here much longer I have decided it imperative that we visit places on the east coast while we still have time. So this weekend we headed to Washington DC for the opening day of the Cherry Blossom Festival. What fun! Chloe thoroughly enjoyed the train ride into the city.
Thank goodness the Family Fun day was inside the National Building Museum since it was a drizzly sort of day out.
She was a little overwhelmed by the whole thing though. The entire building was filled to the brim with people and kids. They had all sorts of free activities covering the main floor of the building for you to do with your kids and I believe that every single family in the city were crammed around those tables. We painted a bucket hat, decorated a kite and made a Japanese tea house (out of a box) We didn't bother to stand in the long line for face painting. We missed the flower pot decorating because we took too long wandering around decided what to do and they ran out of flowers. (yes...real flowers) We skipped the Japanese calligraphy and the origami paper folding because Chloe said she didn't want to do those. About that time I decided that maybe we had better head out to see the Cherry Blossoms since that was the main thing I wanted to do while we were there.
We passed by the Washington Monument where everyone was flying kites for the Smithsonian Kite festival.
After a great amount of walking we finally made it to the Tidal Basin which is surrounded by Cherry Blossoms. Gorgeous!
We had a lovely time. It was wonderful to see the sights. Hopefully I will have more traveling adventures to tell you of in the future. Have a lovely afternoon. I am off to clean for a bit.
