Washington Monumental

You gotta love the Washington Monument. It is such a major symbol of DC. Whenever I am down in the city it’s always somewhere in sight, and I like that. I must say I have yet to venture up it. Don’t worry it’s on my summer To-Do list for boyf and I!

I love playing around downtown when the weather is nice. It’s so much fun and there is so much to do and take advantage of. I need to spend more time in the city this spring/summer that’s for sure!

Fun with the Blossoms!

It was such a beautiful day yesterday downtown. Here are some pictures of boyf and I enjoying our day together, and some of me playing with the blossoms.

Posing with the blossoms, pretending to eat the blossoms and inhaling the blossoms via my nostrils.  Typical cherry blossom picture taking behavior. Everyone else was doing it.

Love is Blossoming! <insert cheesy smile here>

On a side note, I can totally tell the difference in my skin from having green monsters for over a week every day. ,My skin just feels so healthy! I feel like you can really see the glow from the green monsters in this picture! Woohoo! Love you green monsters!

All Cherry’d Out

Yesterday boyf and I hit up the National Cherry Blossom Festival in downtown DC. It was the final day of  peak bloom for the little blossoms, so we got down there in the afternoon, hoping to avoid the mass amounts of people that went down for the parade that morning. We did not avoid the masses.

It was nuts down there yesterday. Boyf had to wait in line for a good 15 minutes to get his metro ticket (<cough> Thank goodness he finally listened to SOMEONE and got a SmarTrip <cough cough>)

Anywho, here are some of the beautiful nature shots of the blossoms and the monuments that I got. It was such a beautiful day out. We couldn’t have asked for better weather.

Here is the Jefferson Memorial across the tidal basin. There were cultural performances going on there all day.

I love this picture. These are a different type of cherry blossoms, there aren’t as many of these kinds of trees as the other ones pictured above, I just think these are so pretty.

It was a blustery day, much of the blossoms ended up in the water. There were some bratty kids who were throwing trash in the water, and pulling the blossoms off the trees and tossing them on the ground. Made me so mad. Where are the parents? Who lets their kids run around like that? It was so disrespectful. Ugh! Sorry, this picture just reminded me of my frustration. Back to the pretty blossoms:

So much fun to go downtown and see the blossoms. It was nuts down there because of so many people. Next year I would like to go down during a weekday and have a picnic and just hang out. Sign me up for that!
