Des Moines Family Getaway




The family and I decided over spring break we were going to visit our state capitol in Des Moines, Iowa.  I have visited Wisconsin and Minnesota capitols but it was so long ago that I really can't remember.   I was highly impressed with the fine details of Des Moines capitol!   I loved the art inside from mosaics to the floor to ceiling curtains.  I was actually pretty excited that my children seemed pretty interested in all the statues and quotes around the building.   One of my favorite ones was this:



After the capitol visit we found a great deal on a hotel!   I was so thrilled to get a discount when I asked if they had a teacher discount...note to self- always carry my ID badge and always ask for a teacher discount!   We actually got half off our hotel room!!!!   Really worth asking!  The hotel was the Ramada Tropics and it had a fun indoor pool area.  My son really surprised me in the pool, he put his head completely under and was trying to swim!  


We also went to the Science Museum!  
I loved the Lego car races!
