Kids are getting ready for summer vacation...have you taken them for a tour of the capitol building? Summertime is a good time to take the kids for the tour... It gets 'em away from their gaming & texting, off their ipads, ipods, cellphones and all that other crap and teaches them something in the process.

The above is a very cool video.

See lots of old, rare pictures of our capitol; from when it was located in Detroit and finally in Lansing.

I’ve taken the capitol tour before and I never get tired of it…each time I go there always seems to be something new that I missed!

If you can’t ever get to the capitol for a tour this just might be the next best thing...but if you have kids and are able, TAKE 'EM ON THE TOUR. And if YOU enjoy local history you’ll dig it!
