    wow those are fantastic!

    Remember this motto to live by: "Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming 'WOO- HOO what a ride!'"

    Thanks. They are much prettier in person.

    I put these up just in case that those of you who are coming to DC for APA miss them in person, they can at least see them. They are definitely worth seeing at least once in your lifetime, but the crowds are horrible.

    Visiting the nation's capital with my family during the cherry blossom season is definately on my list of things to do!

    Thanks for sharing those photos!

    I concur! My sister resides in D.C. and I try to visit as often as I can.

    Very nice pics TN. I assume that's your little one stuffing the cherry blossom into his mouth in the first one.

    You're right about it being crowded, but the blossoms are beautiful and spring is by far my favorite time of year to visit D.C.

    Very nice....Mac seems to be enjoying the blossoms a bit more than he should though.
