What says summer more than kids playing in a fountain?

Hubby and I took a long weekend in DC to see some cherry blossoms. I’m glad we stayed until Monday, or we wouldn’t have seen very many of them! But, in our travels, we spent several hours at the National Zoo, and I couldn’t help but admire many of the clothes I saw there. Here are a few of my favorites.
If you’re not mixing patterns, you’re not doing it right.
Festive zoo shoes.
I wish I’d gotten a better picture of this hair. It was awesome. A braid and curl mohawk.
What are you wearing the next time you go to the zoo? Are you a fashion plate, or a blend-in-with-the-crowd sort?
Yesterday was a big day. It was the day I’ve been awaiting for many years. Yesterday was my daughter’s birthday, and this was the day we became the same age! Just think, every year from here on out, she’ll be older than me. I could get used to this. Do you think she’ll send me money?
Yesterday was also the day that the Houghs Neck Community Council hosted its annual Easter Bunny Fun Day in the local church hall. Parents and kids decorated cookies, made masks and other crafts, and played Easter-themed games (though this egg toss was nothing like those of my youth. Nary a yolk splatter to be seen). And just when you thought the fun level couldn’t get any higher, the Easter egg hunt! Mother Nature cooperated, and gave us a mild day, which we all appreciated.
As my regular readers know, self-editing has never been my strong suit, so you get to see my favorites, even if that means a few lower-quality images get through. I can’t help myself.
What are your Easter plans? This is our second Easter away from our family – we had intended to be away for a long weekend, but plans have changed, so we’ll be home. I suppose I ought to purchase a ham, so we have some semblance of a celebration.
This little girl and her big sister had identical shoes, but neither girl held still for long, so I had to settle for a photo of just one pair.
Another cutie who didn’t spend much time in one place. Until they gave her a cookie …
An adult put Vaseline on the tips of the kids’ noses, then they raced to see who could pick up four cotton balls and deposit them into a bowl, the fastest.
He had a little trouble with the off-loading process.
A ballerina in the house!
Spoons were provided for the decorating of cookies, but were often ignored.
Hubby and I spent several hours in South Boston today, waiting for the St. Patrick’s Day parade. We were near the end of the route, and 90 minutes after the parade should have started, nothing had happened. We enjoyed the people watching, but we decided to get out of the cold and head home, since there was no indication of when the parade might reach us. So, I’ve got pictures of some of the faces to share, but none of the parade that wasn’t.
Larry Bird made a surprise appearance.
Mohawk and a jack-in-the-box leprechaun hat.
This cutie got my vote for best-dressed.
The dog does not appear to be amused by his person’s clothing choices.
