Ice cream truck

From the childhoods we all knew, the Rancho Murieta Optimists sent their ice cream truck around the community Saturday – an annual, start-of-school event – and prompted a nice collection of smiles by kids. Alicia Correia was in the hot seat (the one leaning out the window) as the kids deliberated about the frozen choices available. Correia says they sold 300 treats, with the big sellers being the Red, White and Blue Bomb and the Cookies 'n' Cream. (Click photo for larger image.)

Easter Dog

The Sacramento SPCA’s booth was a hit at Saturday’s Easter Egg Hunt at Stonehouse Park. Why? Easter doggies available for adoption! This one, named Zelda, found a home Saturday. When the hundreds of kids weren’t asking if they could please-please-please take a dog home, they were eating cotton candy, playing with balloon art, walking through a petting zoo and, of course, chasing Easter eggs. The Kiwanis Club, sponsor of the event, provided 6,000 eggs for three egg hunts, divided by age, and the eggs disappeared into Easter baskets in about 12 seconds.
