Mazatlan in March

This is a little anachronistic (that is, out of order), but in March (before the kids came to DC) we went to Mazatlan for some sun and fun. We met Kacie, and her room mate Stevie, and had a wonderful time. It was good to be on the beach, in the sun, and WARM! We had a wonderful time. Hope you enjoy this little photo montage.

Cherry Blossoms

We never paid much attention before. We had heard about the cherry blossoms in Washington DC, but we lived 2800 miles away, so it wasn't really something we thought about much. But ever since we have been here, people have talked about the cherry blossoms in the spring. The closer we came to April, the more eager we were to see what all the raving was about.

Well, last weekend the time finally came. The National Park Service reported that the cherry blooms were at their peak and the weather was to be beautiful. So on Sunday (after church, of course) we went into DC and were not disappointed. The highest density of cherry trees is around the Tidal Basin, near the Jefferson Memorial. It was beautiful. I hope you enjoy the photos ... we did the best we could to capture the beauty of it all.

Oh, yes, and that's us, enjoying it all!
