Our family took a trip to Washington DC Cherry Blossom Festival. We left about 5AM EST, arrived to Arlington VA Pho 75 restaurant at 8AM, about 2 hours and something drive, but due to the kids I have to drive slow and select safe and smooth route instead of those short cut that weave in and out up and down will make kids and wife get sick. Pho 75 in Arlington VA was great, friendly surface, clean, and best of Pho competitive taste of Pho variety, I got the special with everything, I notice when drinking a lot of this soup while it’s hot, it can make you go pee pee pretty quick heheheh. After that drove the Tidan Basin of Washington DC Cherry Blossom Festival, man it was cold and a bit windy, we found parking after a good 30mins drive around. We took some pictures some film and that was it, too cold to continue walking. So we left and search for parking space for museum visit. It was a good hour driving around then finally paid $11 whole day parking at the 11755 building in 12th street. Then walked all the way to 14th street to visit some historic sites and museum. We went to the national museum, $10 each person, to me, it sucks, but I guess $10 per person can’t ask for much, just a bunch of fishes and creatures not a lot to see, my recommendation, don’t go there 🙂 if you’re thinking of seeing a real aquarium :). Then off the Smithsonian Museum, been there before, it was boring to me, since I’ve been there already, new attraction was the virtual drive, cost $7, didn’t try, I thought it was free, although the museum entry was free :). After that we had small picnic outside the museum on the street, and head off back home, encountered a little bit traffic but it was ok, 2hrs drive home.
