Another thing that we hadn't ever gone to see was Mt. Vernon - where George Washington lived! Mom says that she took us when we were little (probably on President's Day when it was free or something!), but I didn't really remember it. We were all excited to go check it out!
The kids were at such a neat age to see all this. We kept telling them "THIS is where George Washington walked!" They loved it!
I love our backyard, but THIS backyard view is unbelievable!
See this wall? It was a hidden wall! From the other side of the hill, you couldn't see it at all - just looked like the hill continued to slope down. It was the coolest thing.
Saw some of the animals behind the house. Sheep..
Some pigs :)
This face of George Washington was made in such a way that wherever you walked, it looked like his eyes were following you! Very cool!

Walked through the museum - so much history. Fascinating to me.
