At the end of April I was in the DC area for Summit 2015 (the event I attend with my AWANA kiddos every year). For the last four years Summit has been in Chicago (during the middle of winter) but this year it was moved to Virginia and pushed back to April. I’m so glad it was!
I flew into and out of DCA so I gladly took the opportunity to spend a few hours wondering around the National Mall. Although I’ve been there numerous times before this was my first time walking around with my DSLR. It also happened to be a perfectly gorgeous day with fluffy clouds, a beautiful blue sky, and plush green grass. Sadly, no cherry blossoms were left by the time I got there but that didn’t change how beautiful the day was.
I hope you enjoy some of these pictures I took on that splendid afternoon!
And I even got to walk around a bit with this wonderful Awana family!
PS: Finding cheap, convenient parking near the National Mall is really easy to do on a Sunday afternoon! Much, much easier than during the week. I Googled for a website with a map of parking garages and picked one from there and had no issues.
