For everyone else today is Valentine’s Day. For Oregonians it’s our state’s birthday–157th to be exact. Yesterday the hubby and I headed over to the capitol to celebrate (did I mention free cupcakes?) There were a lot of fun events for kids, but since our kids are grown (mostly) we walked around, enjoying the building and fiddle music. Old buildings are interesting and beautiful.
I did snap a few photos of the special event, however:
Here’s my hubby trying to hitch a ride in a covered wagon.
They aren’t very big on the inside.
More room on the outside of the wagon!
An awesome John McLoughlin!
Of course, the state seal
Happy Birthday, Oregon!
