Mike's President's Day 2007 at Mount Vernon Photos

Map of Mount Vernon

On President's Day, Supakorn and I went to Mount Vernon. In honor of President's Day and because President George W. Bush was coming, admission was free. We arrived shortly before the grounds opened. After passing through security, we walked over to the area in front of Mount Vernon where a stage had been set up for the President's visit. It was a cold morning and we had to wait about two hours before the President arrived.

George W. Bush

President George W. Bush came to visit Mount Vernon and honor President Washington's 275th Birthday on President's Day. This was my second time seeing George W. Bush. The first time was during his second Presidential Inauguration in January 2005.

Mount Vernon

After the President left, we toured the grounds of Mount Vernon and the two new additions, the Ford Orientation Center and Donald W. Reynolds Museum and Education Center. I also had a chance to see the movie We Fight to Be Free. I was an extra in the movie in May 2006 when they filmed on the grounds of Mount Vernon. See some of the pictures I took while on set in my Making a Movie at Mount Vernon in May 2006 photo gallery.
