Well, wait. We already know the answer to that question. Yes.
For as long as I can remember, I've wanted to go to Washington, DC to see the cherry blossoms. I started looking into it about 5 years ago and brought it up to Aaron - he was completely uninterested. He has family down there - so it would be a relatively inexpensive trip - I'd just need to get there. But Aaron wasn't into it. And it wouldn't be fun alone.
But now, my mom is retired. She loves Washington, DC. So the two of us, along with the kids, are taking the train (8 hours!!!) from Boston to DC to see the cherry blossoms. Aaron thinks I'm being silly to take the kids...but I think it will be a blast.
We are taking the train on Wednesday the 21st - it's an 8 hour train ride, so we arrive there at 4:15 in the afternoon. Depending on how much luggage I have, maybe we'll look around when we get there. And also depends on the blossoms. I'm taking a bet that they are early this year. But we'll be there for 2 full days (leaving Saturday morning) - so I'm hoping to see the zoo, the blossoms, the air and space museum and the Natural History museum. Any one been there with little kids? Advice? Must sees?
I'm hoping that Maggie will nap in a stroller - I'm planning on bringing a double stroller. It'll be interesting! No matter what, I'll have a good story to come out of it, lol.
