Georgia State Capitol Building and Atlanta City Hall

For Carson's Cub Scouts, we needed to visit a government office.  So we decided to visit the Capitol Building of Georgia and the City Hall of Atlanta.  It was fun walking around with Grandma and Grandpa Aksland.  The kids haven't seen many homeless people in their lives.  Seeing so many in one place was interesting for them.  I'm not sure they understood.  As one of them woke up from his nap on a concrete bench, Savannah said loudly - 'Look, he's getting out of bed'.  Pretty big contrast between the beautiful buildings and the poverty immediately outside of it.

As we walked up to the doors of the Capitol, Savannah asked, 'Is this Grandma's house?'
