We can make an adventure out of the everyday!


A few weekends ago we decided to be tourists in our own town (everyone should do that a time or two) and go to Downtown Sacramento! We had such fun walking around and seeing everyone in period costumes! There was this group of women in costumes walking around with Women's Suffrage signs. They were stopping men and asking them if they believed that women should have the right to vote. When men would agree with them, they'd all shout "hip hip! Hooray!" So fun!
 Afterwards, we went and got some salt water taffy in one of the riverfront shops! The kids were in heaven!
 Aiden clearly wanted me to have a piece! He was by far the most excited about the barrels of candy and kept walking around saying, "Mama, LOOK!!!!"
 He was ALL about the candy!
 After that, we took a walk to look at the river! That pyramid building is The Ziggurat Building, which is an office building. It's 10 stories and has 320,000 square feet office space. The kids were enthralled with that!
 The Sacramento Tower Bridge
 There is a train museum and all sorts of trains you can ride on and watch downtown. This was Connor's happy place.
 Obviously, Aiden had a blast too!
 We rounded out our little excursion with a nice, relaxing milk and salt water taffy break (little confession: I hate salt water taffy. So, the kids had a blast eating all of "Mama's taffy" too!). This was Isabella's favorite part! She kept asking for, "more!"

That darn bridge...you know there was a city-wide voting contest to choose the new color? They chose bright gold. What? Do we live in the Wizard of Oz? or Vegas? Heehee. We thought it looked so silly.
