We spent the night in Rocklin last night, a small town outside of Sacramento. It was the first time staying in a hotel again since we moved back home. The morning highlight for the kids was the breakfast buffet and getting to make their own waffles. This my friends, is the definition of a good hotel in their eyes!
The best part for me was not having the long drive home late last night after the wedding. As we were leaving for home this morning, Juliana spotted some furry friends in the bushes that made me smile.
We left by 8:15 am because Charlie had picture day for his soccer team by noon. The good part of leaving this early was there wasn’t any traffic, except for the Oakland Raiders Fans getting ready to tailgate in Oakland before their 1:30 pm game. We decided to drive over the new Bay Bridge and pay the $5.00 toll for the experience. The views were gorgeous today.
We got home in time to get Charlie to his photo appointment and then found out that only 3 players showed up for the team photo and they have to now reschedule it. What a bummer! But the good news is we had the rest of the day to enjoy a relaxing Sunday afternoon.
Jeff smoked a few racks of ribs and we enjoyed a great dinner outside on the patio with my parents and Christian’s friend.
