Last Monday on President’s Day we took the kids on a trip to Ferry Farm, George Washington’s boyhood home from 1738 to 1754.

The kids made crafts,

I tried, but Maria didn’t feel like marching that day.

The kids toured the gardens, although they are bare for now,

took a walk down to the Rappahannock River,

and had fun going on a hike and climbing the trees.

It was a beautiful day. The temperature went up to a balmy 74 degrees. We were there for about 3 hours, but the time went by way too fast.
