Danika, Andy, Allie and Brooke. I must say Allie is a good baby. She coos and smiles all the time. I don't think I heard her cry once. Sisters. Aren't they cute?
Allie was blessed in the same dress Brooke was blessed in. I think that was just yesterday. Okay, not really. It just seems so.
On Friday, February 3, 2012 Tim and I went to visit Mount Vernon. This is where President George Washington lived. It was such a beautiful day. We wore our coats but never felt chilled. I have a greater feeling of respect after visiting the home and surrounding grounds. We were there for several hours and enjoyed every moment.

This is the burial spot of George and Martha Washington. Very reverent.
When we entered the gift shop and restaurant building to get a bite to eat we found this painting of Washington at Valley Forge. As we looked closer we realized it is the origional painting. It's on loan to Mount Vernon.
