On a whim I took Cedar and Eli to DC to check out the cherry blossoms. Todd was working and I figured it would be an easy mid-week day trip. It just so happened to be the hottest day of the year and it was so crowded that I almost cried trying to find a parking spot. Good thing Cedar was there to walk me off the cliff. We did enjoy the beautiful blossoms but quickly got our fill of the heat and crowds.
