Humpty Dumpty

We drove to Olympia to see the State capitol building this weekend. I wanted to take some pictures and the kids wanted to run up and down the stairs. There were dozens of stairs leading to the capitol and the kids spent a good hour running up and down them. It’s a miracle we avoid a trip to the emergency room for stitches or worse. 

Olympia is a gorgeous city nestled in what feels like a hilly forest. It has a rustic flavor with many small shops dotting the downtown. On a musical note, Kurt Cobain wrote most of Nevermind while living in Olympia. I can’t believe I’ve lived in the Seattle area nearly 14 years and had never visited Olympia till this weekend.

While we were there, a photographer showed up and began taking pictures of a couple that may have recently been married. I told Kim they looked too old to be getting married, and then it struck me,  Kim and I tried to keep our kids away from them but I’m certain at least on kid will show up in a picture or two.

Here’s a picture of the kids playing Humpty Dumpty without the great fall.

  1. I made this comment on your flickr photostream but I’ll stick it over here too.

    we wanted to stop there on our way to the coast a few weeks ago but we didn’t end up leaving the house as early as we wanted?
    I don’t feel so bad that I’ve lived here 4 years and never been over to the capitol. 😀
