O Sacramento

On Saturday before dawn we dragged ourselves out of bed to drive to our capitol.
The occasion was the birth of this little guy.
This was no ordinary baby celebration. It was a traditional Chinese baby party.
We stuffed ourselves shamelessly and then went back to our hotel to lay on the bed like a couple of beached whales.
We slept in, ate a big breakfast, and toured our state capitol. Thanks to our hard-earned tax dollars, the place is gorgeous. All of a sudden I'm into architecture. This last one is the inside of the dome.
The drive there and back was long (6.5 hours each way) but enjoyable, as we chatted almost the entire way, except for 1 hour in which one of us was asleep.

It was an awesome way to start off a new presidency and the Lunar Year. Happy Chinese New Year!
