Visiting The Texas State Capitol Building…

+IMG_5804

Our whole family took a mini vacation to Austin, Texas together!

We found that we had some interesting moments with 2 babies, a toddler and 5 adults all in the same car!!

We looked like the Beverly Hillbillies, with all the luggage, high chairs, strollers, cribs, all piled on top of the SUV…with a bright blue tarp waving in the air!

The only thing I regret, is NOT taking a picture of our vehicle, right before we took off.

It was quiet the experience…memories that I will cherish always. Even the difficult moments.

This was our first time visiting the Texas State Capitol…it took our breath away. It was majestic to say the least.

None, of us were prepared for this to be so grand!

I felt like I was in Washington, D.C.

After the state capitol was built, they hoisted the Goddess of Liberty to the top of the dome, it made the Texas Capitol building more than 14 feet taller than the U.S. Capitol!

We just all laughed when we heard this, knowing how Texas likes to do everything bigger!

The inside of the dome…look real closely…It spells Texas around the star.

Look at these silly gooses…hiding from Grammie after our tour was done!

Little Man, continues to warm his Grandmothers heart.

We wish everyone a blessed Thanksgiving this week!

We ALL have so much to be grateful for in our life.

  2. Happy Thanksgiving from NH to TX! It looks like you continue to get acclimated to your new home state. Wonderful photos that made me think of the old west and all those brave men and women from that part of the country. A photo of the packed car would have been priceless. πŸ™‚

  3. Awesome photos! And sounds like a great family trip – cramming inside one car is strangely chaotic and fun at the same time πŸ™‚ I think it’s even way better than a convoy really, haha!

  4. Beautiful photos of this impressive building, Laurie. What fun to go there with the whole family. I can just imagine how your vehicle must have been crammed with stuff as well as people. Little Man is really cute, peeping out from behind the hedge. πŸ™‚ Happy Thanksgiving to you all. xx

  5. Yes, you should have taken a picture of the SUV! ha! So glad that you were not disappointed in the capitol. (The politicians are mostly disappointing these days!!!) Great photos! The area really is quite impressive once you get through the traffic. What a great family trip!

Please share your thoughts...and thank you for the love!
