I think this was my favorite day of the trip!
We started out at Arlington National Cemetery.
Eternal flame and burial site for JFK and Jackie O
Edward Kennedy’s grave
Changing of the guard at The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. I had to take these pictures by holding my camera up over peoples’ heads. I didn’t get to see it first hand.
Laying of the wreath
Bri with one of the other sponsors.
After Arlington, we went to Ft. Myer Army Base for a concert put on by the Army band jazz ensemble. The trombonist was amazing!
We spent the afternoon at Mt. Vernon.
View from the back of George Washington’s house of the Potomac.
This is the original tomb of George Washington.
George is on the right, Martha on the left and the rest of the family is inside the vault.
George Washington’s toilets! I showed these pictures to my kids at school. This was by far their favorite!
We couldn’t take any pictures inside the mansion or in the museum. We did see the bed where Washington died and his dentures. They weren’t made of wood. They were made of hippo teeth, human teeth and brass.
