Spring is in the Air!

Just because I like this picture! I don't know about the rest of the country...but it seems like we have been stuck in the dull, dreary, doldrums of winter forever. The cold and rainy mess for the past week or so, finally gave way to a beautiful weekend. I mean if you are going to have nice weather, it is kinda nice to get to enjoy it instead of being stuck inside the classroom.

Sunday, Wayne, Carson and I went out searching for the elusive evidence of Spring. Cherry blossoms are starting to pop open all around us, but nowhere near what is to come up in D.C. We are planning on a trip up next weekend to see the blossoms all around the Tidal Basin. We know it is going to be packed with people, but it is something I personally have looked forward too ever since we moved here.

We decided to drive down to the river and see what if anything was blooming there yet. We didn't find anything blooming, but it is still an amazing backdrop to take some pictures of the boy. I love this shot...holey jeans and all!This was the day for goofy grinsPetey wasn't thrilled with the photo session.See....more goofy grins! We had to at least touch the water!
We spent some time enjoying the weather and then headed down to Ferry Farm. Ferry Farm is the boyhood home of George Washington, and about 2 miles from the house. There are some gorgeous trees blossoming all along the side of the road so we pulled over and captured a few images.
This is driving into old town Fredericksburg.
I think this is a weeping cherry tree?This weekend we are planning on making the trip up to D.C. to see the cherry blossoms up close and personal. Look for a complete post with lots of pictures soon!

We took the kids to DC when they were 7 and 3 (I think) for the Cherry Blossom Festival. It was gorgeous and not as crowded as I expected. Remember to get pics of the beautiful tulips while there.

Looking forward to your pics!
