Here's to you, Mr. Washington!

Happy Birthday today to George Washington, our first President. Here are a couple of pictures from the beautiful capital city that bears his name:

Here's the Capitol...such an impressive building. And they have tours again!

The Washington Monument...with then-4th grade Nick and Flat Stanley, who was sent back to a friend in Texas

This is Mount Vernon, in suburban Virginia, Washington's home. Our Scout troop took a bike trip there in November, and they had a great time. Beautiful scenery, although I'm sure Washington never saw the planes taking off from National Airport from his front yard!
(No cherry trees were harmed in the taking of these pictures!)
