|The grounds at Mt. Vernon were gorgeous!|
|George Washington had terrible teeth and had to have|
several sets of dentures made. He was self-conscious of this,
which is one reason he always looks so serious in portraits.

|A meeting of the great minds|
From there, we made our way to Old Town Alexandria for a late lunch at Virtue Feed and Grain. The food was delicious, and the little town was lovely!

Our next stop was Arlington Cemetery, and truly I have no words. It completely took my breath away, and I walked around with a lump in my throat and tears in my eyes the entire time we were there. We were just in time to observe the last changing of the guard for the day at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, which was a beautiful and moving thing to behold.
|So incredibly thankful for the sacrifice of these brave souls|

Finally, we stopped to pick up "dinner" at Dangerously Delicious Pies and Coffee. I would not really recommend having chocolate pecan pie for dinner every night, but sometimes when you're on vacation, you've just got to go with what feels right.
