We weren't sure what to expect weather wise. It seemed that every day we checked, we saw something different. There was even snow forecasted for our trip. The weather ended up being nice most of the weekend. Though it was very chilly, there was no snow, only a few short showers and a bit of hail.
The trip was wonderful and the cherry blossoms were BEAUTIFUL. We spent the weekend at my brother's apartment. We had three full days there and while we had a lot to do, we didn't have to rush. We got moving slowly most mornings and then headed out to see sights. In the evenings, we met up with my brother for dinner and just hung out the rest of the evening. Spending that time with my mom and brother was great!
The blooming trees and sights gave me a great chance to really get to use my new camera. I had so much fun playing around with it and can't wait to continue learning.
Everywhere we went, there were cherry blossoms. They were outside my brother's apartment, at the airport, and around all the monuments. Each weekend they had many events planned with the festival. We didn't participate in the events, but just seeing all the beautiful trees was worth it!
I loved the baby tree!
