I wanted to throw a bridal shower right by the water.
I wanted to have another wedding for Adam and I right there.
I wanted the girls to be searching through a clear bag of gumballs.
These are some of the delightful places my thoughts were taken as we walked among thousands
of cherry blossoms! My jaw almost hit the ground and was open the whole time as I gaped at the tiny pink and white flowers that surrounded us.
I felt like I was in the most romantic film ever made, it was dreamy. It was freezing, but dreamy.
There was supposed to be a kite festival that day, but it was cancelled due to 1 inch of snow. Caroline was very disappointed, so we let her fly her kite anyway. She took it very seriously as she wound the string back and forth in the air, not moving the kite at all. Her little legs ran so fast all over the lawn and she would turn her head to make sure her kite was staying in the air.
I can't remember the last time I have been out to fly a kite, but watching your child do it is one of the most delightful things you can do.
When we left the tidal basin and started heading back to the car, Caroline exclaimed, "I'm the happiest little girl in the whole wide world!"
(She felt that way until we went back to the blossoms days later and tried to get pics of the girls in spring dresses in freezing weather.)
Hearing that in her little 3 year old voice was more priceless than seeing the blossoms.
