The weather has been so warm lately that the cherry blossoms have come out very early. We started by walking around the Smithsonian Castle gardens.
The girls wanted to take pictures of each other by the cherry trees. These are their shots.
We stopped to have a picnic dinner by the Potomac River. The ducks came to look for hand outs. Look how close they got!
After our picnic we walked around the tidal basin.
On our way around we noticed something new on the west side. As we got closer we realized it was the new Martin Luther King Jr memorial.
