Mount Vernon

i guess it's time to prove i actually went on this trip. here we are!
Mount Vernon was hot but lovely!

Washington's home is situated right on the river and is breathtaking!
This really isn't a great picture, except this was the lovely Scottish family who stood in line with us for an hour and made me miss my kids and had a lovely chat with!
The tour guides were awesome! This gentleman is Dr. Craik who was Washington's physician who attended to him as he died. They were fun, knowledgeable, funny, and made the long wait easier! The guides inside the house were awesome as well!
Fulfilling another one of W's goals of coming to Washington? Awesome!
