An Address with a Dress at Van Ness

Happy 2015! Whatever holiday(s) you celebrate, I hope museums were involved.

Holiday Photos: White House and Ellipse

These photos are from 2008, when Barney and Mrs. Beasley Bush were the First Dogs, and George W. Bush was President. The gingerbread house replica of the White House sadly does not include any dogs out front.


Holiday Photos: Mount Vernon Estate, Museum, and Gardens

Some photos from my 2012 visit, with my parents, to George Washington’s home. We sampled hot chocolate (at least I did; my mother was taking too long reading exhibit text and missed the opportunity!) and saw gingerbread houses, along with the historic mansion, the land and river, and themed trees everywhere.
