A City We Have Never Been To, In a State We Have Lived In All of Our Lives

We were very fortunate that Donna was able to take a few weeks off in between movies this time around. We decided to hook up our trailer explore some parts of Northern California that we have never been to. Although the wintery conditions kept us from achieving our goal of crossing through the northern border and experiencing a little of Southeast Oregon, we had a great time exploring the top half of our state. In addition to visiting the Capitol Building and California Museum in Sacramento, we spent some time in Folsom Prison,  the Folsom Power Plant, and the Dam in Oroville as well. We visited some cousins, and explored coastal cities North to South; Cloverdale, Santa Cruz, Carmel, Big Sur, San Simeon, and Pismo Beach. It was a great family road trip.

One of the first places we visited on our journey was Sacramento. Sacramento is the capital city of California. It is the place where all of the state's business is taken care of by the Governor and his staff. They work in the Capitol Building. It is a big, beautiful, white building decorated with lots of statues. If I were to compare Wonderland Avenue School to a state, the office would be the capital and Mr. Wilson would be the Governor.

Every state has a capital and Governor. The current Governor is Jerry Brown. He replaced Arnold Schwarzenegger. This is Jerry Brown's second time being the Governor of California. His father, Pat Brown, was also the Governor once.
