Front Runner - Train Ride

Em has been going crazy with all the test trains going past lately, so I knew she would love the chance to ride one. Today was the free day, then Monday the train starts it's service officially.

Em and I headed out early(ish) this morning and arrived at the train station at 9:45am. The first free ride was scheduled to leave at 10am. We were too far back in the line to make it on the first train, but we only had to wait 30 minutes to get on the second. Did I mention it's forecasted to snow today? Yeah, it was cold. And very windy! Luckily we survived the wait.

Some people sitting next to us were nice enough to offer to take a picture of Em and I.

Once the train started moving Em was mesmerized by the houses and cars flying by.

And of course we had to take a toy train along for the trip!

After we'd been on the train for an hour or so she started getting tired. 

So we got off the train and took another one to get home.

I'm so glad we took this trip today. I only wish I had realized the whole trip was going to take 3+ hours and brought the diaper bag! Next time... =)
