Life: Cherry Blossom & groceries

On Friday I took mom and Sofia to the Cherry Blossom Festival in DC. Unfortunately due to the cold weather, the blossom was still not in its peak. However, it was a lovely spring day, sunny and warm so we enjoyed the walk.


Sofia was making the “cool” face



And then we went together to Trader Joe’s and WF. Love the infant seat on the cart
