We made great use of this rainy day! Arielle and I had manicures. I had gel polish put on 3 weeks ago and it lasted well. Arielle had it put on today and one has already come off.
We picked out glasses for me. The lady said they were "bold," and said, "I wear glasses and I don't care. I'm 50 and it doesn't bother me."
Arielle swore she didn't hear it say all that. ::snort:: I hope I can get used to the progressive....
When we got home, we loaded into the van, for a family field trip. Arielle drove us to Old Sacramento! She did a great job.
We bought a family membership at the CA State Railroad Museum...we'll begin saving money on our second trip. One trip through proved we'll need more trips to cover the riches in this location.
I kept looking to show him something exciting and he would have found a new spot to perch. ::snort::
Stacia, on the other hand, enjoyed exploring the hands on exhibits.
|Which one is scarier?|
One exhibit was a sleeping and dining car on hydraulics....it was fun.
This set up was a bit alarming when you rounded the corner. In the trains heyday they served 300 dinners a day from this care.

We really enjoyed the postal car. We met Leo (we think that's his name), who actually worked in a postal car from 1962-1966.
The sign to the right is a crack up.
He was fascinating! History always comes alive when you meet someone who is passionate about their topic.
We were hungry as we left the museum, so we walked around Old Sac until we found spots to please each of us. Arielle and I settled for fried veggies, while the others found an Italian buffet.
Arielle drove us safely home, where we sat in the hot tub, did some laundry, made s'mores in the oven and overall - just chilled.
Living all of life before the face of God...
