Mount Vernon, Washington's Home

This was one of our favorite places the whole trip! George Washington was such an amazing man, and it was interesting to learn more about him. Plus, the estate is kept in wonderful condition, and they had a little scavenger hunt for the kids to participate in. The home is so simple, yet beautiful, and the tour guides were all well informed and very interesting. Brandon and I love old homes anyway.
Our other exciting thing was Limber lost her tooth here. She put it under her pillow, and the Tooth Fairy left her a note on a dollar bill, telling her all about Washington is the man on the dollar, but he didn't take good care of his teeth, so they all fell out and he had to use wooden ones! She thought that was pretty funny!
