August Calendar of Family-Friendly Events in and Around Davis and Sacramento

It's back to school month for most of us, but before you pack up that backpack, squeeze in a little more summer fun with these family-friendly local events in and around the Davis and Sacramento area.
A Favorite Summer Treat: The Peach Milkshake at Whitey's Jolly Kone

A Favorite Summer Treat: The Peach Milkshake at Whitey's Jolly Kone

You know it's not officially summer until the peach milkshake makes an appearance at Whitey's Jolly Kone. The West Sacramento drive-in is apparently quite an institution (opened in the 1960s), but I'd actually never tried it until I was working in Sacramento.

And while the food is fine, what I make a trek to Whitey's Jolly Kone for is the seasonal fresh fruit milkshakes. HOLY MOLY.

Summer/Fall 2018 Reading List

Summer/Fall 2018 Reading List

I used to be a voracious reader when I was younger, but somewhere between working a 9-5 job and chasing after two energetic boys, I've been pretty consistently reading less and less. In an effort to get back on the book horse, so to speak, I've tried to join book clubs, both virtual and in town. But my attempts are usually thwarted due to the challenges of coordinating mid-week evening schedules with childcare and work.

So in an effort to read a few more books each year, I'm committing to a quarterly reading list. It's not much, but it's better than nothing.

And I realized last year I only read non-fiction books. Strange I know. But parenting and business books are what's speaking to me at this season of life. So I'm picking three books to read each quarter: one parenting, one politics or business, and one fiction book.
