Happy Nevada Day
Friday was Nevada Day; the 150th anniversary of Nevada's statehood
. Celebrations have been going on all year, and among them were special activities at the Nevada State Railroad Museum in Carson City on Friday and Saturday.
We went to Carson City on Saturday afternoon, getting away later than originally planned. Traffic was heavy in Carson City because of the Nevada Day parade, which was still going on when we managed to find a parking space. We only watched a small part of the parade before getting lunch at the Carson City Nugget and heading to the Museum.( The McKeen Car Rides AgainCollapse )
There was more to see besides the motor car, although our late start meant we only had a few minutes to do so.( Steam locomotive GlenbrookCollapse )
We made a brief foray into the museum bookstore and spent more money there before closing time. Then we headed north to Reno to do some shopping and have dinner before returning home. We've put off our main grocery shopping until Monday (Lisa has an appointment with the TMJ specialist tomorrow afternoon) because when the 1st falls on a weekend, the grocery stores are a madhouse so we avoid shopping then if we can.
We had a good day and enjoyed our way of celebrating the birthday of our adopted home state. Current Mood: cheerful
