Washington DC Day 4 Arlington Cemetery

After our tour of Mount Vernon, we headed for a tour of Arlington Cemetery. Going there, you get a greater love for our country and thankfulness for all who have died to protect and serve it.  We were able to witness the changing of the guard and wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier... it was all quite the experience for Katie!

 Our last stop of the day was to the Pentagon Memorial... from the terrorist attack of 9/11.

Washington DC Day 4 Mount Vernon

Meredith was wonderful to get us tickets for a tour of the beautiful Mount Vernon!  It was located not far from her house so, we did that Sunday morning.  We learned so much about our 1st President and loved his amazing farm!

 The house's back yard had an amazing view of the river... we sat on the back porch and took it all in!
