I had a picnic with my wife in the sunshine on the National Mall. It felt like vacation and it was wonderful. In a way that is exactly what it was, a vacation from the chilly grasp of winter which may last for another 7 months. Now that’s my kind of vacation! I don’t know of anywhere else you can go and catch 200 kites in flight. The National Cherry Blossom Kite Festival is a must do activity for any Washingtonian.
