Yes, it's cherry blossom time again! I just adore our annual family picnic down at the Tidal Basin in D.C. and eagerly anticipate it all winter long. We usually try to wait for the warmest, sunniest day to go, but the weather just hasn't been cooperating with us. So, this year, we bundled up, headed downtown, and braved the crisp, chilly air.
Luckily, the blossoms were clearly oblivious to the cold spell and looked as gorgeous as ever...
We brought a simple and portable picnic of warm, fresh croissants, thick Belgian waffles, juicy strawberries, orange juice, and coffee (hot chocolate for the girls).
I'm not a fan of paper plates.
Since you can't pick the blossoms, we brought a few of our own (a little shabby, but pretty).
And, as is true every year, the view is breathtakingly beautiful...
