Monticello: Home of Thomas Jefferson

The in-laws were in town visiting this weekend! One of the places we visited was Monticello, home to Thomas Jefferson, third president of the United States.

Entering Monticello- no pics allowed inside

One of the many flowers that Jefferson would have had back in his time.

  5. We went to Monticello last summer, sooo beautiful. The house is really something, isn't it? I would love to live there, if it weren't for all the teeny tiny rooms it has!
