WASHINGTON, D.C. — U.S. Rep. Rick Larsen, of Washington state’s 2nd Congressional District, was able to catch up with family while meeting the children of his constituents on Thursday, June 27.

Jay Carlson, Larsen’s cousin, brought 12 of his students from Lakewood Middle School to visit the nation’s capitol, and along the way, Carlson and his students stopped by Larsen’s Congressional office.

“I had a great time visiting with the Lakewood Middle School students in my office,” Larsen said. “They asked great questions and were a lot of fun to talk to. It’s great when teachers and parents give their kids the opportunity to visit the nation’s capitol to learn how their government works.”
