The East Room…I think!

Last night as I was going through all my White House pictures, I realized I had enough for a few posts, so I’m going to back track a little.

Remember this “peacock” tree?


Well, in the same room as this tree (which I believe was the East room) was this gorgeous mantle:



There was also a flute chorus playing while we toured this room:



Did you notice the mural behind them? Pretty cool, huh? And what is that big instrument that looks like a giant 4? Dad called it the 4 Horn…lol.

Check out this portrait of George Washington:


We were told that it was one of the very first portraits to be hung in the White House.

Water Balloons

When my kids told me they didn't know what to do with themselves yesterday I suggested they go outside and play with the water balloons....
