Old Town Sacramento

So, we have been in Sacramento a little over a month now and I will be honest...I LOVE being back. I was a little nervous for some reason, but there are always fun things going on and the weather is perfect. But yes, I do miss my Florida friends!

A couple of weeks ago, we took a little trip to Old Town Sac to the train museum. I went with one of my besties, Jenny! We were friends in Jr High, and college roommies. It is so much fun living close to her after all of these years. Needless to say, there is a lot of belly laughing when Jenny, Julie and I get together.

Ada got to try her first taste of Cotton Candy. She wasn't sure what to think about it. I don't love sticky candy because there is always a sticky mess to clean up. I found some hidden in her hair at bath time that night.

Before hitting up the museum, we took the kids to a fun candy story. The workers told us we could sample a couple pieces of taffy. The little girls were in heaven. I mean, who wouldn't be?

I remember going to the train museum as a teenager and really enjoying it. They have old vintage trains that you can walk through that have the same furniture and place settings that were used in the late 1800's early 1900's. One of the trains even rocked quickly back and forth, simulating a real train ride from the old days.

Ada had to hold Abby's hand. She was so excited about it!

Yes, horrible picture, I know (Of me anyway, Jen looks great!). We had so much fun at Ricks College (more so our first year). She has the most adorable 4 little girls and is an amazing mom.

We have some other fun little adventures that we have been on that I need to post about later. Thanks Jen for driving and sorry about the $80 parking ticket we got from not paying attention!!!! Lame parking Meter. Who woulda thought that the parking police would have ticketed us (or Jenny...) for parking over the line!! The expired meter I understand...but crossing over the line, not as much! Anyway, it was still a blast!

I love those old trains too, the ones that feel like they're moving for real. I'm glad you're happy to be back in the west : ).

We took Isaac there when he was about 22 months old and he LOVED it. He still wants to watch the video of that museum. So fun!
