Cherry Blossoms

Time for the cherry blossoms!! Hooray!!
It has been such a long and cold winter... it feels great to see the world come back to life.
Emma was a little cold in her shorts and t-shirt. She forgot to bring her jacket. I gave her our picnic blanket to wrap herself  up in.
Rebekah was fine in her shorts. She loves to climb around on the rocks at the FDR memorial.
 We  took a few selfies while walking around.
 We walked down to the MLK Jr Memorial. 
In these pictures you can see how many people were around.
You can also see just how big the MLK Jr carving is.
 There is a short wall around the MLK memorial. On the wall are several of his quotes. These were two of our favorites.
"Darkness cannot drive out darkness, only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate, only love can do that."
"The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy."
