Blog Trip: Day One - Welcome!


Life is a highway... Welcome new friends!

My posts for this "trip" may link to subjects which I have blogged about in the past. I've tried to include my personal experiences of places we have been to that are within Sacramento. Have a look back in time!

As you can see, I'm a mom to 3 terrific boys (*snicker, snicker*). The oldest is in 1st Grade and attends a private, Catholic school. The other two attend a home daycare. My husband and I work full-time away from home - a home watched over by two dogs. We are blessed to have our jobs, our family nearby and this home to call our own.

I have lived in Sacramento, CA my entire life and usually visit communities within, such as Rosemont, Rancho Cordova, Citrus Heights and Elk Grove on a weekly, sometimes daily, basis. Thank goodness gas prices are showing a slight decrease.

There is a variety of "things to do" within our city. With Sacramento being the capital city of California, surely you might want to visit the Capitol Building itself. It's where the Governator works and where our legislature can't pass a budget! We have the American River Parkway nearby with miles of trails, Old Sacramento, Sutter's Fort, Raley Field (Home of the RiverCats) and Arco Arena (Home of the Kings) for all of you sports buffs. Of course, we have our Zoo, which is situated in Land Park; Fairytale Town and Funderland close by as well. We've got museums, golf courses and malls. The mountains and Lake Tahoe are 2 hours to the East of us, San Francisco and the Bay Area are 2 hours to the West of us. Something for everyone I'm sure.

I'm coming to your town next! Show me the way!

So do you have just one boxer or are both your dogs boxers? I have a Boxer/Husky mix and love him! He his the best of both breeds.
