This year, my birthday fell on the last day of the Cherry Blossom festival in downtown D.C. The cherry blossoms were an event we knew we did not want to miss our first year in VA. Even though we fought an ungodly crowd (I will NEVER again go see the cherry blossoms on Saturday!!!), I now understand what all the hype is about. Seeing these beautiful trees with the backdrop of the monuments, tidal basin, and the bluest spring sky was nothing short of breathtaking.

|Another bonus was that we got to meet my friend Lisa Lord, who was visiting from Oklahoma, and take her home with us for the rest of the week!|
