Jesus and Js (fill in the family name). We have been looking forward to this day. Arielle had dear friends in Misawa (we all did). One of those dear friends has grandparents who live in Stockton. They flew from AL to visit over Christmas and we planned to converge on Old Sacramento this afternoon.
We were all looking forward to exploring a new area. Our immediate family (6 of us) were excited to reconnect with dear friends....maybe Arielle was a little bit more excited than the rest of us....maybe. It would be hard to say - I was dearly anticipating a hug from Becky.
We divided into groups. I am glad each group had a camera. Us "Old fogeys" migrated to a spot to sit and chat.....These girls chose the candy barrels as the spot to reconnect...yes, 2 pieces only girls.

She was certainly easy to spot in the crowd
I really want to come back to Old Sacramento and explore....so many places to wander. Several museums to visit.
We never made it to the river. I was glad BreAnne got these photos.
We met back at the train museum at 4:30 p.m. It was hard to end the day so we visited until dusk.
The kids think this hat may be the ticket to get into People of Walmart.
We CA Gherkins needed this "Ah." It is more than enough.
Living all of life before the face of God...
