Weekend review: March’s adventure

March was filled with a whirlwind of weekends. From trips to NC for bridesmaid shopping to catching up with my professors at Elon, to Paddy’s Day festivities..I’ve pretty much been on the go since the month started. However, I think this past weekend qualified as the month’s adventure even though I just stayed right here in DC.

My sister, her 2 kids, and my mom came up for the long weekend and we packed in at least 5 different adventures! So let’s get this weekend review started and countdown March’s big adventures:

5. Cherry Blossom Kite Festival

Saturday we took the metro down to the National Mall and saw hundreds of kites flying for the Cherry Blossom kite festival.

It was a gorgeous day with plenty of wind. Here’s me & BF:

4. Natural History Museum

We followed up the kite festival with a trip to the Natural History Museum, at which point, I learned it’s a little traumatizing to tell a kid all the dinosaurs are dead and that he can’t play with them outside.

3. Arlington National Cemetery

On Sunday, we did the usual Easter routine and then went to Arlington National Cemetery. I’ve lived in the DC area for 5 years now and this is the first time I’ve visited. I’m only sorry I waited so long to pay my respects.

While we were there, we saw the changing of the guard at the tomb of the unknown soldier.

2. Air & Space museum

My sister likes to pack in the fun when she goes on trips, so on Monday afternoon, we checked out the Air & Space museum. Loved seeing all the rockets & telescopes!

1. White House Easter Egg Roll

And of course, the BIG adventure of the weekend was our trip to the White House Easter Egg Roll. I entered the lottery and surprisingly got lucky! I had my fingers crossed that I’d get to cuddle up with Bo, but getting to see him in person is definitely a close second. Here’s Bo (and Mr. President) at the story book time.

And since I couldn’t get close enough, I made do with a cutout on the south lawn. Maddie, wanted to be in the pic too 🙂

So there you have it, March’s adventures. April’s adventure is coming up this weekend. I can’t wait to report back on all the fun BF and I will be having in Orlando! Stay tuned.
