Catch my breath...(WARNING! PICTURE HEAVY!!!)

After having two back to back revivals our family was desperate for some downtime..so on friday when we took pastor Blanco back to the airport my wonderful husband took us to the Sacramento zoo, where we saw some of the most outrageously awesome animals I have ever seen. Then we went to Old Sacramento..it was a day full of magic. I almost can't explain it. It was slow and luxurious, we wandered and explored and there was no time limits or obligations. The town has stayed preserved circa 1950's and it was such a breath of fresh air to travel backwards to a more slower pace and just really take in the scenery. There was actual wood planks for sidewalks, hence the term, "boardwalk". There was old vintage trains, fish and chips, saloons and barrels full of candy...then as the day drew to a close, we ate at Joe's crab shack..one of the liveliest most engaging restaurants I have ever experienced..and it was perfect. Absolutely perfect.
