Presidential tours

There was a lot of driving on this trip but we did it in spurts so until the last two days it really didn't feel heavy. 

Excellent car trippers!
Now the sad news...

we lost our camera in Washington, D.C. 

we replaced it immediately but that means that the pictures I have from before our second day in D.C. are all from my phone. ::sad face::

Day 2 had us drive from Jamestown to Thomas Jefferson's home, Monticello
waiting for our tour to start at Monticello

we need a selfie stick...., just kidding
 After Monticello we drove to George Washington's home, Mount Vernon. Instead of the tour alongside what seemed like every high school student in a 100 mile radius we opted for the outdoor kids hunt.
X marks the spot! we completed the hunt and won a little prize from the gift shop!
 The driving around bit was fun with these fun kids! Sometimes it got a little crazy and sometimes we just had to let it get crazy!

swords from Jamestown
 We stayed at a hotel super close to Mount Vernon and ate dinner (and lunches) that we brought with us to help with cost and speed.
We were very prepared...but forgot utensils.... taco bowls anyone?
 Kate did great on the trip but her snuggle needs were a little increased...haha...
