|Steve and the boys arrived about 4:30 pm after Steve had picked up Paco
at a birthday party which was held at a Science Center in Sacramento.
They ended up staying until about 9:30 pm because everyone got interested
in the Giants’ game which got tied in the 9th inning. They finally gave up as
the game stretched into 12 innings. Paco was going to listen to the rest
of the game in the car on their way back to Davis.
In the photo below Tommy is playing with a toy golf set and Fisher-Price
people as Erin watches Steve and Paco make a log cabin from a set of
Lincoln Logs which my children had 40 years ago.
Earlier Tommy had living room pillows on the floor and pretended that he
was Captain of a submarine. He gave us imaginary life jackets and sold
us tickets. He sold Clark a red ticket. When I asked him if I could also
buy a red ticket so that I could sit next to Clark, he instantly replied,
“You sure can.” Then he yelled, “All aboard”. He was really wound up.
Steve says he gets the ideas from “The Dinosaur Train”. I have never
seen a child with such imagination.
Erin held up pretty well staying up the whole time.
