Going to DC!


Tomorrow morning, my girlfriend Ashley and I, along with another couple we are friends with, are going on a day trip to Washington D.C! When Ashley and I went in the fall with the school’s bus trip it ended up raining and we were unable to do much after visiting the Newseum (which I highly recommend visiting if you go to DC).

We’re excited to see that tomorrow’s forecast is mostly sunny, zero precent chance of rain and a high of 60 degrees! Also, according to the national park service, peak bloom for the cherry blossoms is predicted to come between April 8-12. Although we’re going 3 days before that range begins, we’re hoping to see a beautiful tidal basin!

We also hope to visit the Museum of Natural History as well as the Jefferson and Lincoln Memorials. Ashley and I have never gotten to go to the Jefferson Memorial and Ashley has not been to the Lincoln Memorial either so it will be an exciting new experience for both of us! We hope to get lots of great pictures while we’re there so keep an eye on our blogs following this weekend!
