planes, trains, and automobiles

A few weeks ago we took a whirlwind trip up to Sacramento. We saw Uncle Josh, who checked all of our eyes. The boys were all disappointed that they didn't need glasses.
Then we went into downtown Sacramento and visited the train museum. We even rode on a real train, which the boys were excited about. I think they thought it would go a little faster, though.

Then we headed up to Beale Air Force Base to catch the end of the air show. We got there just in time for the Thunderbirds. We brought earplugs, but after a few minutes we decided we didn't really need them. Of course that's when they did a few surprise fly-bys and scared Charlie and Wesley pretty good. They were pretty impressive to watch, though. We missed the B-2 and a few other planes but the Thunderbirds made it worth the drive.

Charlie conked out within five minutes of leaving home.

The famous golden spike.
