The family was down in DC for the weekend, so we toured Mount Vernon on Friday. I had never been there before and thought we should see something historic on this trip. It was a perfect day. Not too hot and early enough that it wasn’t too crowded. All of the kids were troupers! To be honest, it did make me want to read a book on George Washington since it’s been too many years since that history lesson in school. We saw the garden, the tomb, the main house…and views of the Potomac. We did take the shuttle from the river to the exit, no one was up for walking (I did hear a few “my feet hurt”). Highly recommend it if you are in town!
