Catching up… Sacramento Day trip

Well, Thursday was our trip to Sacramento.  All in all it was a good day. Except for the plane being late getting out of Sacramento.  It was just after midnight when we got home. DSC_2512

This was kind of cool, the shadow of our plane as we were landing.

After lunch it was off to the Railroad museum. It was a quick trip through the museum. Especially since my group was anxious to get to the gift shop. 🙁

In an effort to keep the kids busy when we couldn’t get into the Old Schoolhouse we walked to the other side of Old Town to see and hear about the Eagle Theatre. Never made it to the Old Schoolhouse.  🙁

Our last stop of the day was Sutter’s Fort. It was interesting, there was a group of 4th graders there acting out the time period.

 

 

DSC_2711The boys had a fun time in the jail. Of course, so did Becca, but that’s probably because Mark was there!

Amazingly, fast trip but overall the kids were great, with the possible exception of the airport.  But 3 hours in an airport will make anyone crazy.
