We make the trek to D.C. this weekend to visit our friends K&A and to catch a glimpse of the beauty that is the National Cherry Blossom Festival. It truly is a national treasure. This year marks100 years since the trees were gifted from Japan as a symbol of friendship. In February of 1912, over 3,000 trees arrived by ship. If you're interested in the history, click here. D.C. is celebrating the Centennial for five weeks. We were lucky to be able to visit just after the blooms sprouted.
Heading down to the Mall.
Same spot, different angle, four years earlier.
K & A and their new little Pumpkin Doodle.
