James Madison's Home- Montpelier

 Here are some pictures from
When we "lived" in Washington DC, my family and I visited a LOT of different historic sites! Some of my favorites were the homes where past presidents lived! Such as James and Dolly Madison! :) When we were at Montpelier in 2009 the inside of the house was still being re-done! We were still given a tour through the house and our tour guide did a wonderful job explaining everything that would of been in the rooms at the time! I also enjoyed the horse aspect of Montpelier, being it was, and might still be, a race course as well! :) They also had a barn and pasture lands that held "retired" thoroughbreds! :) So, anyway here are some of the pictures from our day at Montpelier! :)



View from the top porch! :)


A really old tree! I believe, if I remember correctly, it is 100 years old! :)

Yea sorry we couldn't make the last dance practice! All the rain we had we thought we probably should stay at home. :)This week I don't think we'll be able to make it either, :( I hope to make the last one in June though!!! May is always busy for us!! Travel, Graduation, and Weddings!! :)
