McMillers Rock Sacto!

Labor Day weekend had us taking a mini vacation to Sacramento - on the train!  A short 2 hour trip plopped us right near Old Town Sacramento.  2 days, 2 kids, 2 backpacks.  We stayed at an inexpensive hotel that had a pool and free breakfast, was in close proximity to a beach, and that had a shuttle that would take us to/from places.  Sweet.  There are lots of stories to tell - taking the kids to a fancy dinner when we meant to go to a kid-friendly place.  Watching 4 episodes worth of bad TV.  Inadvertently going during Gold Rush Days. Swimming in the American River, and seeing all walks of life on the beach, including 3 horses.  Brian taking Robin for a walk at 4:30 AM so I could get some sleep and having to explain to all the, um, interesting people he met that he was carrying a baby. Checking out the Railroad Museum.  Saying "Hi" to the Governor.   We thought there'd  be nothing to do, but it ended up we had no spare time.

And of course, there were pictures.
