Cherry Blossoms and Easter eggs

The last day of March my mom flew into town. We had a great week site seeing downtown DC. We toured Arlington Cemetery, the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, and the Tidal Basin with the cherry blossoms in full bloom. The weather was perfect for Mom's visit this time, unlike her October visit in which it rained every day. Thanks for visiting Mom!

Look at those blossoms. Just beautiful!

We walked all the way around the tidal basin. We had some great views of the Jefferson Memorial and the Washington Monument.
