Peak Cherry Blossom Day!

Some of my family members were going to be in D.C. this past Tuesday for the peak of the cherry blossoms. When I heard that I thought, well Portland has cherry blossoms, I should go out Tuesday and see if that's the peak. I didn't manage to get out there Tuesday, but via timberpress on twitter I saw today was close to the peak for the blossoms on the river. Yay! I've been excited about those trees blooming since I saw they lined the river on our apartment hunting trip. Anyway, I had to get over there for pictures today & will probably go back over the weekend. It even ended up being a perfectly clear, warm & sunny afternoon. I've typed enough. This post really needs to be about the pictures of the gorgeous cherry blossoms!

And then some, and we might, possibly, go back over there over the weekend if it's sunny again. Many Portlanders were out taking pictures, also saw a picnicking family, and a bride & groom having their photos done. Spring is here!
