They really pack in the action for this field trip. First stop: NC Legislative Building...
where they roll out the red carpet for you...
but don't let you actually walk on it.
You can walk next to it and admire the plushness, but don't touch.
We saw Governer McCrory and his security detail walking by
when we came out. We yelled and got him to wave at us.
NC Museum of History
Listening to a presentation on butter churning.
Right before our tour of the Capitol Building
With the statue of the three US presidents from NC.
Any guesses on who they are?
I had to google it because I'm not in 4th grade:
Andrew Jackson, James K. Polk, and Andrew Johnson.
(Although it sounds like none of them had real strong NC ties.)
The end of our tour of the Capitol Building.
Our nice tour guide is Gov. McCrory's big sister.
And, lastly, the NC Museum of Science
GIANT shark jaw.
So glad Whit got two of her besties in our group.
They are both SO quiet.
Nothing like me, Marianne, and Monika at that age.
Yay for field trips!
