went to go see annie at her work - this girl is such a badass

mom, dad, and i grabbed some coffee at a local cafe

then we went to watch, you know, just the state senate

where anne hangs with the speaker of the house

so cool to see it in action! it's one of those things you absolutely take for granted. we got to see bills argued, cases made, and later on got to meet our state representative where i discussed with him, of all things in the universe, my stance on COPPA (the Children's Online Privacy and Protection Act) LOL
