Leaving St. Louis we headed out to Jefferson City to see the Missouri State Capitol building. Is it just me, or did everyone have a hard time remembering Jefferson City on the state capitols quiz in grade school. Well now that we've officially been here, I don't think I'll forget it ever again. So we pulled up and we see this beautiful building with the usual columns, and dome, pretty standard issue. Inside, there is a lovely painted ceiling depicting Missouri's history and pretty but unremarkable dome over the state seal in the marble floor. We some some bronze statues but to perfectly honest, nothing stood out to us. As my boyfriend Jordan likes to say when something is a little blah...."It needs garlic". That's how we all felt about this statehouse. Sorry Missouri, it was beautiful but definitely not one of our faves.
