I went home to sacramento this weekend for a little surprise for my dad's 65th birthday. For those of you who don't know my dad [and grandfather] were both farmers. Dad is retired now but still keeps a few cows in the front yard for good measure. I got to see all the rest of my nieces and nephews as well, all of which have grown a foot since I've seen them last. It's kid heaven out at the ranch; dirt, bugs, swings, toys and they can be as loud and crazy as they want. It was great to see everyone.
I also got a couple of photo assignments out of the trip too, it was great practice for me.
