spring break: part one

This week, the boys are on Spring Break.  Bart also took a few days off of work so we could all go to Madison to see his brother Bret, his wife Charise and their kids.  When we got to Madison on Monday, we met Charise and the kids at the children's museum, only to find out that it's closed on Mondays.  So, we turned around, saw the Capital building, and decided to go inside and look around.  Let's just say it was a happy accident, because it was so cool inside, even my six-year olds thought it was pretty neat!
 This is the ceiling in the middle. It goes waaaaay up! 

 All the kiddos laying in the middle of the capital building, looking up to get the best view!

 This is inside the supreme court.  It was amazing how ornate everything was!
 The ceilings were amazing!
 Introducing Senators Kade, Cooper, and Ky!

 Love these ceilings!!  I think I got a neck cramp from looking up the whole time, but it was so worth it.
And looking way down the staircase!  What a fun thing we got to do, that we never would have planned on.  (plus I felt like Super Mom-doing something educational during Spring Break :) )
