April 2 thru April 4, my mom, sister, Rachel, Michelle, and I went to Washington D.C. for the Cherry Blossom Festival.  It was so wonderful to see all of them!  I miss my mom and sister a bunch and wish we could see each other more often.  The Cherry Blossoms were so gorgeous!  We took hundreds of pictures as usual and all of them were so good, it was hard to choose which ones to post.  We went to the different Memorials and Monuments as well as the Capitol and White House.

So… I loved everything we went to see and take pictures of and the great memories we made.  One that stood out the most to me is that Rachel can not stick her tongue out without raising her eyebrows.  This was hilarious to watch her try to hold down her eyebrows as she stuck out her tongue.

My most favorite part of this vacation other than seeing everyone and the SNEAKY confetti egg fight we had, was going to eat at the restaurant Matchbox!  They have the most fabulous food I have ever eaten.  Between the 5 of us, we ordered about 9 dishes each of the two times we went to eat there.  My top two favorites were the stuffed french toast with cream cheese and rum infused syrup and the waffle sandwich with pruscetta and gruyere cheese with rum infused honey mustard.  WOW, WOW, WOW! Highly recommend! Everything we ordered was just mouth watering.  You can find the menu here.

Here is a picture of the first day we went.  All the food we ordered is not on the table yet.
