2. Our trips to Madison frequently include a stroll through the Capitol, not because we haven't toured the building before (we have - MANY times), but because we can get Hallie and Lily to walk for miles if we promise the journey will eventually lead to their "castle".
|Inside one of "their" many "ballrooms".|
|Cuddling baby ducks.|
|"Milking" a "cow".|
|Working up to the big rollercoasters and scary rides.|
|On our way to getting drenched and forced out of the fair by lightening. |
When Hallie saw this picture she exclaimed, "Mama, you look so big and
excited!". That's me - large and (enthusiastic about being) in charge.
|Sunflowers for (what seemed like) miles.|
|Sunflowers aren't one of my favorite flowers, but to see so many |
of them in one place, all blooming at the same time, was impressive.
|Large and "in charge" once again... |
My group selfie technique needs work.
|The picturesque Wisconsin countryside on the way to the sunflowers.|
|Don't knock "relaxing" on top of a giant stuffed banana - with |
both of your kids balancing on top of you - until you've tried it.
|I LOOOOVE chocolate-covered bananas.|
|Just little old Hallie, reading the newspaper...|
|I saved this picture for my nephew, Carter, who adores |
giraffes, and then I decided it was too cute note to share.
Happy Friday, Chasing Roots!
Linking up with High Five for Friday here:
