Memorial Weekend Day 3

Touring the home

Today Aunt Carolyn and I went to visit the home of our first President, George Washington's Mt. Vernon. I love coming over to this beautiful homestead. It's such a beautiful, quaint sanctuary along the Potomac River. The view is spectacular, the gardens are impecable. The spirit there is amazing. You can feel the love of the Washington family and the nation for this family when you visit the grounds, home and tomb of one of the most influential leaders this country has ever known.

Welcome to Mt. Vernon
After touring Mt. Vernon, we made our way over to Wolf Trap for an evening with the Presidents Own Marinen Corp Band. Anytime you hear a band playing with the President around this is the group. They do such an amazing show every year that I love coming to. With classic patriotic songs performed with such precision, it's hard to not be moved with patriotism for our country and the men and women who serve to protect the rights we have as Americans. God Bless America!
