In the summer of 1981, Mom and Dad loaded up the family in the Dodge and took us for our first family trip east. 

Looking back, I think they went east to appease their eldest son's interest in history. 


We visited Washington, D. C. and then headed out to see George Washington's Mt. Vernon. 

A few old signs led us to the house. We parked up near the mansion and went up to the door where a guide let us in.
