Mt. Vernon

It was so much fun to have Austin's parents come visit this weekend!  We went to a hockey game on Friday night, spent most of the day Saturday at Mt. Vernon, and today we went to the Udvar-Hazy Air & Space Museum by Dulles Airport.

It was a pretty packed weekend (mostly with fried food!), and I'm so glad we got to see Mt. Vernon during Christmastime.  They bring in a Christmas Camel (apparently George Washington did the same thing), made hot chocolate, and decorated a giant gingerbread house in the shape of Washington's mansion.  Mostly, it was just fun to walk around with Austin and his parents.  
After spending most of the day there, we went to Old Town Alexandria to eat dinner.  Eamonn's is a Irish fish 'n chips restaurant that specializes in all things fried.  It was all really good but I liked the desserts the best!  (Fried dough balls, fried bananas, and a fried snickers!!)  To offset some of the grease that we ate on Saturday, I think I will give you a recipe for a nice salad later this week ;)
