One of the things I was most excited about doing was going to the kite festival at the Washington Monument that was a part of the Cherry Blossom Festival activities. Lily recently had "kite day" at her school and had learned a lot about kites. Of course, I forgot our small kite at home, so we just had to watch others fly theirs. I could have watched all day, but the girls only stuck it out about an hour.
Both Lily and Madeleine were impressed by the Washington Monument. They had a lot of questions about the flags around it and were worried about how much it cost to have that many flag poles (they did a fundraiser to get a flag pole at their daycare last year). The first thing they did when they got on the grass was cartwheels.
