GTGL Snippets: Family Trip to The National Cherry Blossom Festival, Washington, D.C.
Second time's a charm!
Our first attempt to witness the cherry blossom trees was a fail. We seized the opportunity to take the trip to Washington, D.C. during the kids' spring break in 2013 (almost two years after moving to the northeastern part of the country, but that's another story). The National Cherry Blossom Festival was scheduled on March 20th through April 14th of that year, and the National Park Service predicted that the trees will have their "peak blossom" on the festival's second week.
