For part of our vacation we were able stop and visit this place.  For those of you that don't know (don't worry I didn't know about it until a couple of months ago) this is Monticello Thomas Jefferson's home and plantation that he had.  There is so much to do here, we spent a couple hours there and there was still tons to do. 

Here is a view from one of the gardens.

This is a foundation from one of the dwellings that the slaves used to live in.

This is the front of the house where you start the tour.  You can't take pictures of the inside of the house, but let me tell you its pretty cool.  It is very interesting all the little gadgets that he had to help out around the house.

The kitchen.

Here is his gravestone/monument.  Its inside the family graveyard.

This place was a blast, they had activities for the kids to do, my daughter wrote a note for her dad with a quill and ink as well as different games to play.  They also give garden tours.  When we got there we also discovered that James Madison's home wasn't too far away that you could also tour I would like to do that the next time we head that direction.
