We took the metro, which Macy calls the choo-choo train and loves. You have to take metro down there on days like this otherwise you'll be driving around for an hour trying to find parking like some friends did.
|Anna gave the kites a thumbs up!|
|I love watching her hold her kite up.|
|She wanted my glasses because the sun hurt her eyes|
|He said the knot was three times this size in the beginning|
|getting our picnic all set up|
|apparently Anna didn't like the picnic|
We wandered over to the Washington Monument where the official kite festival activities were happening. Things were winding to a close so Macy and Ja found a good kite flying spot in the roped off area.
|I love how little she is compared to her daddy|
I couldn't believe how many people were there! The beautiful blue sky was full of colorful kites.
We then headed back to the metro and stopped to get Macy an ice cream and Ja and I got hot dogs at the nearest truck. We sat on some steps of a building and ate our snacks. Macy saw some pigeons and was excited that the birds are back. Awhile ago we talked about the birds flying south for the winter so whenever she sees a bird she says, "Mommy, it's spring!" My favorite part of the whole day was sitting on those steps with her and hearing her say under her breath, "Don't step on the birds!" talking to the pedestrians walking by. She's so sweet to think about those pigeons.
Another great weekend activity in D.C.!
