Down by the station, early in the morning

Last Saturday Bryce had to work and Tyce was at Scout camp. I needed a break from sibling squabbles and chore supervision, you know? Besides, it was a beautiful spring day--perfect for getting out of the house.

Remember when I said we wanted to ride the train in Boulder City?

We did it.

Well, those of us who were available.

Mary, Cameron, Harrison, and I got there just in time for the scheduled departure. All aboard! The kids were really excited to ride a real train . . .

. . . with a real conductor.

They spent most of the time hanging out the window, making me nervous.

But they had a great time figuring out what was up ahead. (This is my favorite picture.)

Yes, to get this shot I am practically hanging out the window myself.
The train was a pretty slow-moving and the ride wasn't very thrilling, to be honest, but it was a lovely way to spend a chunk of Saturday.

Harrison said, "I knew what a train would be like because of Jon and Eight Plus Kate."

Thank goodness for reality TV.

We've done the train ride too. It's definitely not something to whoopdedoo over but for little ones, it works.
