Exploring Muir Woods

img_3544Over the holidays, we had a bunch of aunts, uncles, and cousins at my house! They came from San Antonio (Texas), Albuquerque (New Mexico), New York (New York), and Orange County (California).

They wanted to spend the day in nature, so we decided to go to Muir Woods near San Francisco. When we were driving there we stopped to get Subway Sandwiches. When we got out I saw people wearing t- shirts and shorts and it was 32 degrees!!!!!!!!!!!! I could not believe it!

It was awesome seeing the big red wood trees. I remember learning about how the red wood trees are one of the tallest trees in the world.  There were smaller ponds around the trees. We saw tree trunks that had fallen down and were really massive! Here are some pictures.

On our way home, the sun was setting. We got an awesome picture.

George Washington’s Tomb at Mount Vernon

George Washington

 

Going to George Washington’s tomb was amazing because my uncle got us the VIP tour. We didn’t have to go walk around Mount Vernon. My family and I got to ride around Mount Vernon in a golf cart. When it was time to go to George Washington’s tomb, there was a long line because everybody was trying to go in and pay their respects to George Washington. When we got there, they stopped the line and we got to go into George Washington’s tomb because we were part of the VIP tour. So anyways we got to go into George Washington’s tomb and they asked who would like to lay the wreath on George Washington’s tomb. My whole family picked me instead of my sister because she is only 3 years old. I know she’s going to be jealous when she is older. I also got to lead the Pledge of Allegiance after placing the wreath on George Washington’s tomb.
