So this morning it looked decent so we decided to still go to the sakura matsuri in DC. I went with Hamilton, Gabi, and Shannon. We were planning to meet up with Karin there but when we finally found her, she was just about to leave. ;_; Sadness.
I had a really good day and all 4 of us seemed to enjoy it even though we all did different things really. Gabi went straight to some agriculture exhibit thing and I wandered with Hammy and Shannon at the street festival for a while. We didn't bother to go to the actual trees as we were told they had stopped blooming and we figured as much since the ones at school already had too. Damn weather! Anyways, spent some time with them before running off to try to find the doll gathering.
It was a small doll gathering at the Freer Gardens. I was kinda worried whether anyone would show up though as the thread for it wasn't really get much responses lately and me and this guy, David, were like the only two really talking on it for a while. ^^; But luckily people did show up! It was a small group and so I was able to actually talk to the people easier. They were all REALLY nice. ^^ Though ARGH! KimPossible was there. >>; She was scary. ^^;;; She had her DollfieDream with her and omg, she kept putting him next to Dietrich. x_x I think 'cause she was all "Oh look, we used the same fabric for the kimono, just different color!" But DollfieDreams really scare me. >>; And she put the kimono on wrong too. ^^; But besides her, everyone was really cool.

Though it started raining a bit heavier so the doll gathering broke up during that and Gabi ran into me (as she was making her way through exhibits and came right into the garden we were in XP) and Hamilton and Shannon wanted to find us. Though it was sad as the place was soooo pretty and yet we all missed so many good photo ops because of the rain and 'cause we spent too much time talking instead of photos. XP Really wish I had at least gotten pics of Die around the water. x_x Oh well. But I will remember that area! Because omg, I totally see awesome cosplay photo possibilities. >>;; Just gotta figure out what costumes would be durable to wear onto metro and into DC. ^^;;
I was really sad there was no Udon soup this year though! ;_; At least I couldnt' find any so had to settle for Wonton though the Wonton I found, ended up being really good and actually was more like an Udon verson of Wonton. XP 'Cause it had veggies and the broth was more Udon tasting. But I still wanted my noodles. >>;
