Visitors From Reno
Look who showed up the other weekend:
Going to bed was not an option, so we tried to tire those kids out.
We took pictures.
And more pictures.
And we played Mad Libs and we read books and we climbed on furniture and finally we decided to go to sleep.
Saturday morning Tank, Chloe and I snuck out for an early walk to Starbucks while KK and Cricket slept. Somehow I had a feeling coffee might be helpful.
For the record I’d like to point out that I just happened to have ribbons that matched Cricket’s shirt. I was totally meant to be the aunt of a little girl.
… and of course oranges for my new juicer.
After the farmers’ market we headed to lunch at Boudin. I think I’ve had more sourdough in the last 3 months than I had on the East Coast in the last 3 years.
After lunch, someone who shall remain nameless managed to slam his finger in the car door.
Dr. Juice provided Advil and a bag of frozen peas, then left the patient in the capable hands of Nurse KK. She then prescribed some Vitamin D therapy for Cricket.
It was a really terrific production with a wonderful cast and excellent staging. I’ll definitely head back to B Street in the future.
PS Don’t be fooled by Cricket’s pout.
The next day we did a quick run through the Norman Rockwell exhibit at the Crocker before watching the 49ers secure their Superbowl berth.
Then they headed back to Reno while I watched the Ravens kick some Patriot booty. A full, fun and family filled weekend in Sacramento.
