Trip to Mt. Vernon

Saturday, we took a journey to Mt. Vernon, the home of George Washington, the First President of the United States of America. Of course, we chose the coldest day of the year in five years to go. It was SO cold. I cannot even express the level of coldness. The inauguration will just be great. In the picture are Meggie, Wendy, Colleen, George, Susie, Amber, Martha, grandchildren, Carolyn, and Kristen.

Wendy and hoards of other random people. She was really into it.

We discovered this hole thing to take pictures with.

Tomb/Memorial of many of the President's slaves.

We should not look back unless it is to derive useful lessons from past errors, and for the purpose of profiting by dearly bought experience.
