Mt. Vernon

This morning we drove out to George Washington's house, Mt. Vernon, after a semi-joking comment from Ron yesterday! Be careful what you wish for in a horrible swamp town with over 2,000 historical attractions (aka Washington DC)!

Kylie and Eric chillin' at Dogfish Head the night before

Shoppers! Autumn's gold standard in grocery stores!

On the way to Mt. Vernon, we spotted a Krispy Kreme, so we HAD to stop.
They don't have donuts in Brazil, you know!

Mmmm...jelly donut!

Bem vindo!

Group photo!

Ooh! Aah!

Flowers in bloom

Ron and a tree planted by George himself!

That's an old tree!

Rockin' the new look!

Some weird mini-mushrooms

We ended the day in Old Town Alexandria for some final shopping and a delicious Tex-Mex lunch!
