Visiting Thomas Jefferson's House

Last week we went on a tour of Thomas Jefferson's house. It is about 20 min from our house. It was awesome to see! It was crazy to walk through his house and picture him living there. He owned 3000 acres that he inherited from his father. We saw the graveyard where he and his family were buried. The gardens and the vineyards are still kept up and are beautiful! We watched a movie about all he had done and then hiked a path up to his house. We had fun and thought it was pretty cool to take a pic with his statue at the end of our tour. There is a lot of history here in Virginia.
