Today we drove over an hour from home to go to a city park that has a train for children to ride. The train has been in operation for fifty years. M remembers riding on it when he was a child. After the train ride we walked by the duck pond and watched the ducks and the huge koi underwater. We spent a while in the playground. The whole experience would have been enhanced if a certain someone's attitude had been better. But by then we were two hours past nap time and had to lump it. Before we hit the road M and Emma went for one more train ride. At $1.00 for four laps around the track I think it's a bargain.
There they are, right behind the engineer.
From our first train ride, when I actually rode along.
As the children exited by the engineer, they could lean over and push the train whistle.
I like this duck pond. It has an island in the middle where they can do all their poopin' and Sunday strollers don't have to walk in it. The lake near Noni and Popi is an example of what happens when you have too many wild ducks. It's hard to take a step with hitting something gross.
Two ducks and one exotic fish.
More play time!
