Hangin’ out in California’s capital

We’ve just wrapped up our visit to Sacramento.

Yesterday, we checked out Old Sacramento, a lively district with restaurants and museums. The school house museum (pictured above) wasn’t open, but it made a nice photo.

However, the California State Railroad Museum was open. If you want to see trains, it’s the place to go. There are dozens of full-size trains, including locomotives, a sleeper car, a dining car and a refrigeration unit. I highly recommend it.

Oh, and there’s candy — lots of candy. We counted no fewer than three specialty candy stores in Old Sacramento. This shot was taken at a place called Candy Heaven. My kids are still eating the gummy bears and lollipops they scored.

Nothing like being on the road with three sugared-up children.
