SO I feel pretty lucky. I got my little sister all to myself for an entire week! She was coming from BYU Idaho and could only find a ride to Sacramento. It was meant to be because we had the most amazing week!
We took advantage of the rain and went for a hike along the Roseville bike trail where Sam could splash in the puddles with his new rain boots. I discovered this new trail with Bethany. I love living in a beautiful place.
He's showing off, you can tell.
Sunday night we went to the Christmas Tree lighting ceremony in Roseville and the hour long ceremony turned in 10 minutes because of the pouring rain. It was pretty memorable.
We headed to Sacramento on Monday and had to see the Capital. Notice that the Governer's office still says Schwarzenegger.
Sam was telling me all about the building's construction and design.
Another fun event was the Golden State Park where we observed a staggering amount of homeless people wandering around. The walks were gorgeous and the company even better.
Thanksgiving was just delightful. We spend the day at McKay and Laree's place. Trevor and Lindsay joined us as well a s the Busby family. We cooked, chatted, swung on swings, climbed trees, played games and just had a great time.
Old Town put on a holiday showwith staged lights, music and storytelling. Sam was impressive and it really made me feel the spirit of Christmas. Kids really have a way of making you getting excited about holidays.
