California part 2: visiting the family in Sacramento

We spent the last part of our trip to California at Grandma and Grandpa's house in Sac.

Playing in the pool is always the activity of choice at Grandma's. 

Jessica loves her little raft. We will definitely be packing this on our summer holidays.

It was so nice of Annemarie and Will to make the trip down from Washington to join our visit. Here we are at the farmers market picking up fresh veggies for dinner and flowers for Grandma :)

We are loving our Never Give Up tote bag! You can get your own here

The cousins enjoying a pre-dinner artichoke.

Grandpa joined us on our trip to check out the California State Capitol.

The capitol building.

We were able to take Connor into the Senate Chamber and the Assembly Chamber. It was an informative and fun experience. Makes me excited to take him to Washington DC someday.

Fun and interesting and not too long.

Date Night!!!
Chris and I went on a date night while Grandma and Grandpa watched the kids. 
Thank you Grandma and Grandpa. There is nothing better than leaving your kids with the people who love them most in the world next to us of course! 

We went into Old town Sac for dinner and drinks.
The Firehouse restaurant had amazing food and excellent service!!!!!

Jessy is always posing for the camera! 

We had a nice visit with Uncle Bobby and Great Granddad. They look a bit mad but really they are not they just never smile in pictures.

Just a walk in the park with Grandpa.

Jessica copying Connor per usual.

America! Living abroad has made us more patriotic. We love AMERICA! 

Connor and Chris both love trains so the railroad museum was a must see stop!

Back at Grandma's the kids played and played: board games, basketball, bubbles etc.

 Let me introduce baby Samantha Stone.

 Beautiful baby Samantha and her beautiful mama Andrea.

 A very late story time with Grandma . . . these 2 were SO SO tired.

 Snuggles with Grandma.

 I absolutely love this picture of Andrew and baby Samantha.

Annemarie AKA the baby whispers.

Daddy doing a super man into the tubes . . . yes he made it!

The cousins . . . not everyone was happy to have their picture taken but at least they are all in the pic!

My super sassy Jessy.

 A little basketball . . .

Daddy and his girl :)

It was such a nice visit. We are thankful we got to see Most of the family. We missed Gracie, Katie and Stephen. Hope to see you all really soon. XOXOX
