Cherry Blossoms

Never have I ever seen the cherry blossoms in Washington. Crazy, right? I’ve lived here since 2008 and have somehow avoided the splendor. My parents came to visit last weekend and we went in for the day to check it out. It had just rained- a lot- the night before, so a lot of the blossoms had fallen off, but it was still beautiful!

The main attraction was a group of women throwing out perfume samples. I snagged a few and actually really like it!

The last thing I saw before we headed to the zoo was this guy. Made my entire day.
