What an exciting trip we took on Monday, January 30, 2012. We have a Sister Lee serving with us in the mission. She is a fantastic missionary. She is the niece of Senator Mike Lee from Utah. We were able to take Sister Lee and her companion Sister Moses to visit the capital and her Uncle. The Senators' office arranged a wonderful private tour of the capital. We got to ride on the underground train that goes from the Senators buildings next to the capital over to the capital and we saw a number of senators. We also were privileged to visit with Senator Lee in his offices in the Hardt building. His staff was wonderful. Bro and Sis. James from our mission help run his office and were very helpful also. We also had the incredible experience of attending -watching from the balcony- a "vote" on the Senate floor. So we saw many senators enter the room, vote and depart. Got to see Washington DC in action. We had a really lovely day. It was great to meet the senator, but extra fun to spend the day with our two sisters.

The building and architecture is just breathtaking. Very intricate, and with lots of symbolism and meaning. The tour was very informative and fun.
