The Cherry Blossom Festival

We are off to Washington, D.C. for the blooming of the Cherry Blossoms.
Nothing signifies the arrival of Spring quite like the 
Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington, D.C.
The Cherry Blossom trees signify the friendship between the US and Japan,
who gifted many of the trees to the United States.
 Rumor has it that only about half will bloom, the weather has not been kind to them,
but we enjoy the trip each year and have decided to go anyway.

Prime viewing is suppose to be Saturday, it will be 75 degrees in Washington on Saturday,
and that sounds just perfect to me!!

oooooh, you are enjoying captures from last year!

Beauty And The Beast

I am not a huge Disney fanatic but I really wanted to see 

This theater is brand new, close to home, 

has stadium seating and awesome cup holders.

We went to the 3:30 show, 
prime time sleeping time, I told the hubs he could take a nap and he did.

I on the other hand, did not.
The movie was amazing - the traditional Beauty and the Beast Disney Story.
Belle was amazing, everything about the movie was so authentic.
"Belle, a bright, beautiful and independent young woman is taken prisoner by a beast in his castle.
Despite her fears, she befriends the castle's enchanted staff 
and learns to look beyond the beast's hideous exterior, allowing her to recognize 
the kind heart and soul of the true prince that hides on the inside".

The movie was outstanding - the set's, the costumes and make-up - everything about it.
But, it is not a cartoon and not for the little ones, 
it did have some scary scenes.
