Observations, pictures, and sketches highlight the transition of moving to the nations's Capitol after 30 years of living in the Midwest. A clash in cultures? Maybe not!

Ponies and Goats on Capitol Hill
You never know what you might come across in the neighborhood. As we were coming home after lunch we drove by the park a couple blocks from the house. Usually there are activities going on at all times of the year. There are tennis courts, swings, dog walking areas, and picnic spots like any other park. But I don't think I've ever seen ponies and goats. Someone was having a birthday party, perhaps, based of the balloons. Not only were there ponies, but a goat, a couple chickens, and some misplaced dogs. This neighborhood is filled with young kids, and each birthday party seems to out do the next. We used to go to the zoo if we wanted to see and pet animals. Now the zoo, in some shape or form, comes to the kids. But I know this doesn't just happen here. It just seemed a little out of place next to the freeway.
