cherry blossoms

cherry+blossom+polas

We're finally getting out of the house on a regular basis. Oscar got a visit from his cousin Olivia last week so we visited the Cherry Blossom Festival here in DC. I thought the pink blossoms from 2,000 cherry trees combined with blue skies made the perfect recipe for a polaroid photo op, but I soon discovered my film had expired. (Has it really been that long since I pulled out my fun little toy camera?) I've always wanted to experiment with expired film, but I think I would have preferred a different subject. :)

I wish cherry blossoms weren't such fleeting little flowers, but isn't that part of their appeal? They're magical ... and look so fluffy that you want to eat them. But now they're pretty much expired, too.

Oscar thought the blossoms were pretty cool while they lasted.

Oscar is adorable - glad you're getting out and about more. Spring is too wonderful to be missed, especially those fleeting cherry blossoms!

It WAS you! I saw your link on Bridge's blog and I think I saw you in the airport like March 24th, in the evening!! I was staring at this cute new baby, and we got our luggage and as I passed the cute new Mom I looked at her face as I walked out the door and I thought "wait a gosh darn second I think that was ALI!!" Now I'm pretty sure it was YOU! You must've been visiting, congrats on the wee little darling. Fun blog:)BTW this is Heidi(Hofheins) StJulien...I used to live in a fake bedroom room below yours...
