We are so lucky that there are so many different museums, aquariums, and other places of interest that are only a short drive from our home. This time around we made the trip to the railroad museum in Sacramento. It was a really great trip. My sister Laura tagged along so that she could buy her tickets for a concert she wanted to attend without having to pay the convienience fee. Would have liked to be able to stop a read a lot more about the different trains and historical aspects, but the kids would have gone amuck. Well, more amuck than what they were.
After the visit to the museum we walked around Old Sacramento, stopped for some ice cream and found a really great sock store that my sister Amanda would love. After our visit we walked back to the car and headed for home. It was a quiet ride home, everyone fell asleep except for me, the driver.

As my husband was getting ready to walk out the door today, I had mentioned that Cameron had made some Valentines notes for us at school that he would be giving us. With that said, Paul said he needed to get me a Valentines gift. I, in turn, said I don't want any gifts, but as I thought about it I realized I did want something...
I want to be able to sleep in and not get up at the crack of dawn with the kids. I want my house to be cleaned by someone other than me. I want to be waited on hand and foot, like I do for my family on a daily basis. There it is. That is what I want. NO Candy, NO Flowers, just to be taken care of for one day.

These are all pictures from the birthday parties that the kids have been invited to. We got to watch the kids run around and jump on trampolines at a gymnastics birthday party. We then got to chase our kids around an indoor bounce house play place for a birthday party. We had lots of fun. I didn't get the best pictures due to the fact the my camera does not take motion photos very well, but you get the gist of it.
We unfortunately had to miss other birthday parties. If only there was enough time to be able to make everyone's birthday parties we would have tons more pictures to show.
