George Washington’s Mount Vernon Mansion, Alexandria, VA 

Ally and I went with Monica and Lucia to Mt. Vernon today.  It was odd to be in such a familiar place but at a very different time.  The mansion is not white anymore, rather more of a tan, since research has shown the sand used would have been more tan in color…I don’t know! I really loved visiting the gardens—George Washington was so clever!  The new education and theater rooms were quite well done, too!  Ally and I sent Grandma a Mt. Vernon snow globe for Christmas.
