Mt. Vernon, A Family Affair

Thanks to an especially dense traffic day, we abandoned our plans to take Shira's Mom into the city and instead came up with a quick Plan B: visit Mt. Vernon, George Washington's historic residence.

Mt. Vernon turned out to be an excellent choice, the history and grounds were fascinating for everyone. The kids puzzle map that was provided turned out to be the perfect mechanism for pulling our seven year old in. It didn't hurt that they had various farm animals around to oggle.

It's definitely a must see site in the DC area. I'm also eager to poke around the grounds and parks nearby, as it seems like there would be some fun hiking in the area.
