Grandparent weekend Extravaganza!!!!

 In late April I had the pleasure of spending the weekend at a vascular conference in Sacramento, and my parents had the crazy will to spend some quality time with the grandkids! Fun was had by name it we did it...flashlight craziness, Christmas in April, pool time, puke time ;-(, evening walks, train heaven, and even icecream at all hours....after all, it is Grandma's right!!!
Cutie Talin on his new tike tike bike Forrest was always trying to steal!
Speaking of the devil..."Where's Grandpa?"

Evening walk, trying to find Grandpa, (he had a way of disappearing on his bike...that silly Grandpa!)

Brothers in the bathtub!

Talin was actually a fan of the sunglasses!

Sacramento Railway Museum!!!! The Fulton boys loved it!

model...but I believe what railways would have looked like in our neck of the woods!

"Wow Mama!!! TWO more minutes...two more minutes..."

Two exhausted Fulton boys!

This fabulous weekend was capped off by not only great Grandparent experiences...but also by a spur of the last moment park soiree with old rowing friend Sarah Dreger and little cutie patootee Owen! My kids were a bit crazy and low on sleep, but this excellent N. Sac. park was the perfect place for them to burn off energy and prepare for a LOOOONNNG car nap, ( ooohhhh how mama did wish!). I haven't seen Sarah since her wedding and had never met handsome Owen, so this was a win win all around. We chatted about...welll...babies, as that is what has happened in our lives lately. It was a great, albeit short and sweet visit :-)

Kid craziness!

Great trip, but glad to be near home and out of the central valley
All in all I survived a solo parenting experience with two kids. A major feat and a bit of a fear for myself. Yes, I really couldn't have done it without my wonderful parents who I do believe needed a vacation from the grandkid Sacramento vacation! We didn't sleep much, but we sure did have a lot of fun!
