Cheers for the Cherry Blossoms

Surrounded by a cloud of pink, we savored the expanse of cherry blossoms, in full bloom in Washington, DC. 

And, marveled at the impressive architecture that makes up our capitol.

I know our founding fathers would have been proud at how beautiful the city looks today. Don’t you agree?
