Going to George's
Today me and the girls (Jeff is in Toronto for the week) went to Mt. Vernon for the 18th Century Craft fair. It was as dreamy as the poster and the perfect mix of things I love...overcast weather, crafters who are anything but crafty, children activities and history.
I found someone to do Sally Jane's silhouette. Which I was so thrilled about because I have one of the other girls. Here is a the lady who did it. I am so in love with silhouettes these days especially ones for the holidays.
Annie Kate was in the magic show, this is now her third fair and her third time getting up on stage.. what happened to our shy daughter?
We found someone selling rocks and I could not stop thinking of my grandpa who used to have a rock shop in his backyard. I was buying half inch rocks for $.50 a piece, he was probably laughing at me. The girls loved the rocks and I enjoyed telling AK about the rock shop in my grandpas back yard.
They had a whole army of soldiers who marched, shot their guns and blew off the canon. It was so wonderful. I wish Jeff could have been here he would have loved it. Without him being there I didn't venture on the boat ride down the Potomac, they were free for the day. We will do it next year. photos of the day.
oh and I can't wait to get my new camera, my zoom has been broken on my camera for weeks and it is drivng me crazy, so they are not the best photos and kind of hard to see.
Also if you feel the need to learn more about George Washington rent the movie "The Crossing" it is wonderful! Jeff and I just watched it last week. love that netflix!
