National Cherry Blossom Festival and Parade 2015

Mom keeps saying I've done everything in D.C. and while that's not even close to true (one of the biggest reasons why I love D.C.!),  I have seen the National Cherry Blossom Festival Parade before. I planned to go this year anyways, but it ended up working out even better that Grandpa and Jeannie were in town and the four of us went together.

After the parade we walked over to the Tidal Basin. It was crazy crowded as can be expected, but it is also the peak and worthwhile to see. Plus, I was the only one of us that had seen the MLK Jr Memorial before.

Mount Vernon 1992? vs. 2015

Earlier this year Dad and I visited Mount Vernon on President's Day. I made him take a picture of me on the porch because I recently remembered seeing on of Grandma and I on the back porch the first time I went to Mount Vernon (1992?). I tried to find it again to do the collage, but it wasn't clearly in the 1990s photo box. In putting the photos back in Mik's closet after the new floor was installed, I finally found the photo (it had actually been in a photo album). With just a vague memory of the photo, we actually managed to get it at almost the same angle and with me in almost the same spot. Even scaffolding is in both!
