Monday morning was the Youth Conference at the hotel and we got to sleep in a little because Chaperones weren't needed until 10am. You know what time my internal clock went off? 6:30am (5:30am in Kansas) Nice job, internal clock! We started the day eating lunch at Ben's Chili Bowl. Lots of famous people have been there and it's all over Food Network and Travel Channel. Neat place.
After that, we headed to Mt. Vernon. By far my favorite place that we toured but I will admit that I had no idea what Mt. Vernon was before I left Kansas. Ha! (I asked some friends after I got home and they weren't sure either.) 90% of it was authentic which made it all very interesting. Again, no photography in the actual house.
Korean War Memorial
The exact spot Martin Luther King stood to give his "I Have a Dream" speech. I didn't know this until I went but he gave this speech at the Lincoln Memorial. For obvious reason, his memorial wasn't created until after he was killed.
