DC cherry blossoms

This past weekend we ended up taking a semi spontaneous trip to Washington D.C. I say semi spontaneous because we didn't actually have plans to go until two days before. We were originally going to go to Asheville NC which is about a 5 hour drive from us. So instead I was like DC is also five hours and the cherry blossoms are at peak bloom. I was just thinking this is probably a once in a lifetime experience. When are we going to only be 5 hours away again, have the peak bloom fall on a long holiday weekend? Probably never so I wanted to make the most of it. Besides there is so much to do in DC that I knew we wouldn't be bored if we went for a long weekend. 
We mainly went for the cherry blossoms and so did everyone else haha. It was so beautiful and it smelled gorgeous! But it was crowded. We ended up walking around the entire Tidal Basin on Friday and Saturday. That is why some photos are the weather is cloudy and some of the photos it is pure sunshine. It was beautiful both days. 
The actual cherry blossoms festival isn't until next weekend but since the blossoms were at full bloom. There was live music, a ton of food trucks, tents with gift shops inside, and other exhibits. It was really fun. We ended up biking a lot as well and going to a couple museums. We went to the Watergate Complex and explored. We also went to the Holocaust museum and in the main exhibit you get little ID cards of someone who was in the Holocaust and you get to go through the exhibit and at the end learn what happened to your person. We ended up both surviving the Holocaust which was cool but we were one of the lucky ones. It was a very emotion museum. We also went to the Spy museum and you had to memorize a new identity for it and if anyone asked you were that person and not yourself. It was rather fun. We had a wonderful time and it was so exciting to see the cherry blossoms just light up the whole DC experience.
