Washington's Birth Place

This weekend we went to Virginia to visit Chris' family. On the way we always pass George Washington's Birth place and I always comment about visiting but we never seem to have time. This weekend we did have some time so we stopped and I really enjoyed the tour and a chance to see where our first President was born and lived until he was 3 years old. There are no pictures of the original house which burnt down on Christmas day 1779. The foundations are still present and a memorial house was built nearby giving an idea what it would have been like.

Here is a photo of my table in the dining room.
Love the glass container with all the fruit in it.

Well Fall is truly here and last weekend we had enough rain to do us all year. The trees are turning but some of them have already lost their leaves. We are house sitting some flowers for our friends and they look pretty good outside our house so I took some photos.
