After living here for about a year, I heard about these fantastic lotus blossoms at the Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens in D.C., but it wasn't until 4 years later that we finally found ourselves in D.C. while they bloomed! Usually, we are vacationing the month of July and miss it.
We had just gotten back from a big vacation and we were all tired, but I figured we could go for 20 minutes, love it and be done. It worked great!
The girls had the best time pointing out the huge dragon flies, geese, frogs, turtles and the blossoms bigger than our heads. Awesome!
And their poses?! Haha- totally made up by them!
It really was a sight to see and I hope we can come back with Tyson next year.
Yup- tired of walking (and still recovering from vacation) I had timed our trip just right of this year.
One last funny pose (her doing!) and then back to home to finish resting and recouping from vacation.
It's totally worth a visit so if you come into town during the middle to end of July, we will take you here! We also lucked out that it wasn't hot and humid that day Double win for the Smith girls!
