Cherrypicked Photos

Damian and I accompanied his mom and sister Gabby to Washington over the weekend to attend the National Cherry Blossom Festival. It rained cats and dogs the whole way down Friday night, then we were treated to two days of spring bliss in our nation's capital. Here are some of my favorite pictures from Saturday: 

Tidal basin

With my favorite South American beauty!

My guy

I couldn't relax because I was so afraid someone would fall in!

Hunk alert!

A strict “no smirking” rule was enforced near the Lincoln Memorial. 

First time seeing the Martin Luther King Jr. memorial -- very cool

Picture perfect


Also my first time seeing the Korean War memorial, a lovely tribute to the men who fought there, including my dad and his twin, Kenny 

Damian's poor sister spent much of the day driving around looking for parking that never came ...

Luckily we made it up to her with an incredible early dinner at Le Diplomate near Logan Circle!

We ended the evening by seeing the Petalpalooza fireworks at the DC Wharf -- a newly developed area just across the river from my brother Bill's Capitol Hill neighborhood ...
