minnesota tax rally

last saturday joel, lauren and i went to a tax rally that was held at the minnesota capitol in st. paul. it was a beautiful day, sunny and low sixties. minnesota politics has been a little depressing lately (al franken may soon be our senator). so it was encouraging to be around fellow americans who are justly concerned about the direction our nation is heading and the ever increasing size of government. it was great having a pastor leading the event in a reading from proverbs and delivering a powerful prayer. we do have some inspiring leaders here in mn such as michelle bachman and gov pawlenty who spoke at the event. i am glad we were able to attend, and it seems now more than ever is the time to make our voices heard.

representative michelle bachman.

lauren loved climbing the stairs of the capitol and exploring inside. so she was very sad when her daddy said it was time to go.

so i made the long trek back up with her.

"yay! we did it!"

park time

lauren and her daddy took a little outing to the park. (and i took a little nap). joel was kind enough to take the camera and get a few pictures of all the fun that was had.
