A trip to the Capitol

Even though I work on ‘the Hill,’ I rarely visit the Capitol but yesterday I had the perfect excuse when Mom and Carol decided to get out of Annapolis, come to DC and wanted to visit the new Capitol Visitors Center so off we went. Just by luck, we arrived just as a tour was starting (last one of the day) so we got to see parts of the Capitol. Mom had not been in the Capitol since we went to see President Ford lying in state and Carol had not been since her 8th grade field trip. Here are a few photos:

And, on the House side:

As we were leaving, we saw the current Supreme Court.
