Cherry Blossom Festival

Stella and I went to the Cherry Blossom Festival yesterday. We got there a little bit late, parked about a mile away and walked to the courthouse. It would've been really pretty if the weather had cooperated. This year, they decided to change the angle a little bit and make it a fundraiser in support of Japanese victims of the tsunami. There was a two and half mile walk along the river so we went ahead and walked that too. It was interesting enough that we'll go back do it again when the weather warms up.

Stella met a big gang of kids while we were there. They were all very dog friendly. and proceeded to put some serious big love on her body. They knew all the right spots to scratch and for once, she seemed to actually like it. If she hadn't made such an effort to drag me under the food booths, it would have been a perfect day. I still haven't figured out how to turn her attention back to me when that happens; without the aid of a stun gun.

The kitten report: The kittens seem to be doing great. If anyone ever tells you that kittens double their body weight in the first week, believe it. It's absolutely amazing. Gypsy (the black and orange) just opened her eyes today and I'm betting the others will follow suit tomorrow. I have a couple of pictures that were shot today but they're still in the camera. Soon.

So Stella took you to the Cherry Blossom Festival, and you didn't want to scrounge for ground-level goodies? ...In spite of conflicting agendas, it sounds like y'all had fun.

We have a Cherry Blossom Festival in Macon, too. This year the trees were at their peak during festival week, and the weather was perfect. Click my name for one view of the trees. (Check March 2011 for more cherry tree pics.)

I can't say we were lucky enough to get to the one in DC but don't worry - if we ever get to that one, we're looking you up - same goes for Macon and WeHo :)
