I once again ventured off to our nation's capital for some time with my bud Emily and a few adventures.
On Saturday, we made our way downtown to the Washington Mall for the annual kite festival. It's hard to see in these photos, but believe me when I tell you, there were hundreds and hundreds of kites flying. I think my favorite part of the festival was pointing out my new favorite kite every five minutes! :)
We also checked out the Old Post Office, taking two elevators and 130 steps to the very top of the bell tower.
Absolutely worth the effort to see this view!
I wanted to travel to D.C. this spring in hopes of catching a glimpse of the famous cherry blossoms trees in bloom. But due to the awesome early spring weather we've all enjoyed, they bloomed early! I may have missed the cherry blossoms (I'll get you next year, ya hear!) but I did come across an orchid exhibit at the botanical gardens.
Check out this cool flower, a powder puff!
But this, by far, was the highlight of the gardens for me. A pineapple!
What would a blog post about a great trip be without a photo of some yummy grub? Here's a photo from a place called Amsterdam, a build-it-yourself falafel sandwich.
And of course, my generous hosts, the newly married Emily and Adam!
