It's so hard to see the cherry blossoms for the people that live here. I don't mean to sound like I resent the tourists. But wheeling a stroller through incredible crowds really isn't how I like to spend my weekends, you know? But we live here--I mean, we HAVE to see this. So, one Tuesday afternoon, I packed up the kids and headed into the city to meet Paul, and then we metro'd and walked down to the famous Tidal Basin to check them out. It was pretty chilly, but we accomplished our goal and were able to snap some pretty shots without all the crowds. Beautiful, isn't it?
