cherry blossom time

I haven't been able to go downtown this year so I pulled some of my old photos out to show the cherry blossoms. This is from 2006, I'd just finished the Cherry Blossom 10 miler. It's surprising to me seeing how young my kids look. And this was before we even thought about having a 3rd child! The girls were 2 & 4 here; now they are almost 4, almost 6 and DCB is almost 2!!!
I haven't done any 10 milers since then either. I did the Rock-n-Roll 1/2 marathon in Virginia Beach that fall and my running days are behind me. My knees have had it.

Forgot I was supposed to be posting about the cherry blossoms. CNB works for the National Park Service and shares an office with the Chief Horticulturist, Rob Defeo so we usually get a heads up on when the blooms will be at peak. Still, it's a madhouse downtown and I don't usually drive in with the kids... I will try next year. And maybe I'll get tickets to next year's White House Easter Egg Roll.
