Aidan, Emmy and I went to see the Cherry Blossoms around the Tidal Basin this morning. The peak bloom is supposed to be from April 1 - 4 so I thought that if we went just before it would be nice but not so crowded. We got there around 9:30 so it was still a little cold but worth it because we got great parking and the tour buses had just started arriving so it wasn't too crowded. Aidan was much less impressed this year than last but he likes going to the monuments so he ended up having a good time. Emmy just likes getting out of the house so she had fun too. The cherry blossoms were beautiful although the light was a little flat - I wonder if they look prettier in afternoon light??
