MAJOR Field Trip Day!

Thursdays are turning into our field trip day. This is wonderful, because we've been enjoying the IRL company of a family we got to know through the power of blogging. We have so much fun together, get a little snarky (ok, I do - she's so much nicer than me!), and think of ways to drive Regina NUTS that she can't be with us.

Here are a few pictures of our first stop yesterday.

The LEGO Model was almost as cool as the real thing.

One heckuva crazy mama....bat-shit crazy, even! At least she was a contender!

I love taking pictures. I wish I were a better photographer...

A very nice man from the Senate Information Office gave us a private tour of the Senate floor. We explained to him that we had a special meeting in the Capitol that conflicted with a public guided tour, and he was very accomodating. Unfortunately, the pictures I took didn't turn out...

Oh, I'm sorry, what was that?

Our very special meeting?



we had to watch this....

and meet him....

Many, many heartfelt thanks go out to Senator Fobbe. She and her office invited us to watch the official Veterans bill signing, and she made sure we met Governor Pawlenty. She is a fervent supporter of homeschoolers, bowfishing, SOLDIERS, and farmers. Oh, and did I mention she is Catholic?


  1. I love your pictures, you did a great job!

    OK, now I believe that crazy mama DID cut her hair...wasn't so sure before this picture!

    Looks like you had a great time!

  2. not too bad of a picture, you know if you dont like tommy and all.

    why didnt you go meet your great senator stuart smalley??

    i will only be jealous of the spam museum.

  3. What a fun tour you all must have had and how very neat to have met the Governor.

  4. Wow. Nice shineyface picture of me there. You should have gotten a shot of me outside, in the wind, with my hair unbound, in all of it's glorious fuzzation and afro-like dimensions! Now, THAT would have been impressive!

    You KNOW I'm much meaner than you, but thanks for pretending that you are meaner. See? THAT automatically makes you nicer! I win.


Let me know what YOU think!
