What an exciting day I had today!
Midwives from all around the state of Washington came to our state capital today.
Kimmy and I, along with the grandchildren, were there to support all these Midwives as they visited their state Legislators. The visits were scheduled ahead of time and we went to their offices for "informational visits".
The Midwives' spoke to numerous politicians, thanking them for their current support and efforts that insure access to the safe and cost-effective services of Midwives. Plus, there was a House Bill that they (we) wanted them to support, that was soon up for a vote.
We finished our visit and then toured the Capital. We made sure to take a lot of pictures because we both are doing a post of today!
We were not the only ones visiting our State Legislators. Many motorcycle clubs were in Olympia also. They made an entrance that was loud and impressive.
