But it was a pretty decent Saturday...
(The picture really doesn't do it justice - it is much more majestic in person!)
More of the beutiful colors...
(and the bouncy thingy that didn't try to take off with children!)
This my friends is the capitol building in Hartford, CT
I would have to say it is my most favorite building in Hartford.
There are so many other beautiful structures that I couldn't get picture of...
they made me stay and play with the children *laughs*
Maybe...no definitely...another time!
This is how the day played out - when I was leaving the clouds stared to roll in...
it got dark and dreary...
(so I headed to the mall for some retail theraphy - nothing like some flourescent lighting to lift ones mood)
Just a few more cool pictures of the building I got to hang out with today!

How's this for a salad with your dinner?!
Ok, maybe just my idea of the "ideal" salad!

CHRISTOPHER COLUMBUS discovered America in 1492. At least that is what all elementary school children were always taught: "In 1492, Columbus sailed the ocean blue." Of course, Columbus never did "discover" North America, and the regions he did explore were already inhabited. He only discovered them from the viewpoint of the Europeans. Yet his first voyage did prove one thing for sure, that the earth was not only round, but that it was bigger than he had thought, Eratosthenes notwithstanding.
One of the first known celebrations marking the discovery of the "New World" by Christopher Columbus was in 1792, when a ceremony organized by the Colombian Order was held in New York City honoring Christopher Columbus and the 300th anniversary of his landing in the Bahamas. Then, on October 12, 1866 the Italian population of New York organized the first celebration of the discovery of America. Three years later, in 1869 Italians in San Francisco celebrated October 12 calling it C-Day.
To mark the 400th anniversary of Columbus' voyage, in 1892, President Benjamin Harrison made a commemorative proclamation. But it was Colorado, in 1905, that became the first state to observe a Columbus Day. Since 1920 the day has been celebrated annually, and in 1937 President Franklin Roosevelt proclaimed every October 12 as Columbus Day. That's where it remained until 1971 when Congress declared it a federal public holiday on the second Monday in October.
