Sacramento Trip

At our school our fourth graders take a trip to our state capitol, Sacramento. We fly up on a Tuesday morning, early, early, and then fly back Thursday evening. It is three days of PACKED fun and site seeing. I loved this trip and hope I can go next year with Savannah. We require our kids to earn their money for it, so it is a trip they have to work hard for!

Here we are at the airport and then on the airplane.
Capitol building and a leaf that Nathan really wanted to bring home from Sutter's Fort.
Train Museum and some rocks that Nathan really wanted to buy!
No trip to Sacramento is complete without a visit to CANDYLAND!
We had a nice room with a view of the Capitol from our window. The next day we went to Sutter's Mill where we mined for gold. Nathan found a few flakes.
Above:Nathan started collecting pencil sharpeners from each place we stopped that sold them. Jelly Belly Factory and the Golden Gate Bridge.
My favorite part of the trip was the time we spent at Alcatraz. I loved the tour.
Cable Car Museum and no trip would be complete without fortune cookies!
The saddest part of the trip was when Nathan wanted to buy one of these and I wouldn't let him. I'm such a mean mother!
