DC Adventures, Day 2

Last week, while I was in DC, I decided that there was another thing I wanted to see on my trip - Mount Vernon. I'd never been there, and I was going to visit my friend in Alexandria, VA for dinner. It seemed like the perfect time to get out of the city and check it out.

Boy, was it crowded. It was me and about 1000 school groups. I still had a great time though!

I waited in line for about 20 minutes to get to go inside the house. I'm glad I did...it was pretty neat in there. I didn't have a ton of extra time (I didn't realize how much there was to walk around and explore) but I did find some sheep. :)
 I walked over to George Washington's tomb too.
I took some time inside the museum that's on site and also bought myself a Christmas ornament (I looooove collecting Christmas ornaments from the places I visit) at the gift shop. But I also got my favorite souvenir of them all - a smashed penny! :)
I look forward to going back to Mount Vernon in the future and really taking the time to get the full experience and learn more about it.

After Mount Vernon I headed to Alexandria. I still had a little time to kill before meeting my friend, so I went shopping. More on that next week....
