Michigan's Capitol Building

Home Up


    After Samantha's soccer game in Holt, we made the short drive into Lansing to stop at the Capitol Building. It was very peaceful on the capitol grounds, as the only other people there were a young couple taking photographs and a wedding party that was doing the same. We waited patiently for the wedding party to take their photos, and then we took some of the kids on the steps leading to the entrance. Although Sam just visited last year, and Tyler a few years ago, it had been a good many years since either Tara or myself had been to the capitol. It was a relaxing, pressure free trip to see one of our state's treasures. Plus, on the way out the kids go to play in a pile of leaves, making "leaf angels" (even though Drew kept calling them snow angels)!

Our Visit to Michigan's Capitol Building

A look at the Capitol Building.

Drew wanted Tara to write down the plaque word for word in his little notebook, but we were able to convince him that a picture with it would be better. Jayden posed for this one with him.

Tyler thought it would be cool to stand over a steaming manhole cover. Guess it's better than standing over a steaming pile of... oh, never mind!
