Mount Vernon and George Washington


On Sat. we took a drive to see Mount Vernon where George & Martha Washington lived. It was a beautiful drive, only 45 min. away from our home. The grounds were gorgeous as was the view from the mansion of the Potomac River. The mansion is decorated and furnished with period pieces and looked very authentic. It was interesting to learn what a inovative and brilliant farmer George Washington was. Very much ahead of his time! Enjoy the photos!

How fun that you guys are so close to so many sites related to our nation's heritage! The question is...were there any cherry trees for good ole George to chop down? ;)
