First Family gives tour of the governor's mansion

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Governor McDonnell will give his State of the Commonwealth address to the General Assembly Monday night.

Among the topics: how to balance the budget.

The new governor took time to show off his new home this weekend. There was an open house at the governor's mansion yesterday afternoon.

Folks told NBC 12 that this event was a great way to wrap up this weekend's inaugural activities.

"We'd like [our children] to remember they were part of this," said Brian Judy. "We hope it'll mean something to them when they're a little older."

The governor, first lady and their daughters all came out to welcome guests in a receiving line.
