Sharing My Love of Politics

I grew up reading presidential biographies and even at one point had pictures of every president adorning my bedroom. I’ve loved politics since childhood and my daughter Anna seems to be picking up the same love for presidents and politics. We can’t stand all the political commercials that are flooding our TV in the swing state of Colorado, but we still like studying the history of the presidents.

Today I took her to the Colorado State Capitol in Denver and we took a tour through the building. She loved the Colorado state history and especially the pictures and artwork of various US presidents. I always like it when my daughters seem to share my interests because it doesn’t happen too often.

Here are some of our pictures:

With a statue of her favorite president, Lincoln

Two of her other favorites, Obama and Washington
