Labor Day weekend brought my parents and sister up from Southern California to visit! What a treat! I only get to see them about every four months, so when that time rolls around I'm always thrilled. It must be difficult to be a grandparent and be hundreds of miles away from a grandchild. Nevertheless, we made it count, full of smiles, laughs, and Lola snuggles!
We took a stroll by Freemont Park where Chalk It Up was happening. It was the perfect place to take my parents to see, first hand, what Sacramento is all about. The park was filled, corner to corner, with locals- artists, volunteers, businesses, and musicians- all there for the same reason. You could really feel the sense of community.
I love when I get to see my sister! She is such a wonderful being and one of the greatest blessings in my life. I always wish I could see more of her. I love her! And it's obvious, Lola loves her too!
It is so wonderful to see my family. I really wish it could happen more often. But the chances we do get with one another are always extra special.
