The family shared this group photo of them in front of the US Capitol Building. Jim Bob and Michelle brought along over half of their 19 kids with them, including Jana, Jedidiah, and Josie.

“We are having a great time in DC visiting our Senators and Members of Congress with a ministry called Capitol Connections,” they captioned the photo, as well as additional photos they shared on Facebook.
