April and the Trains
The weather was gorgeous so we decided we would ride the train to the park they have, have a picnic, and ride the train back. We rode on a small passenger train that April calls the "school bus train". It didn't quite have the old clickety-clack we heard about in books but it was fun all the same.
At the park there was a train to play on which April loved. We ate lunch, ran and played, made daisy chains, watched a bald eagle work on his nest and explored a huge nurse log.
It was with great sadness that we had to leave the trains. April has been asking every day since if we can go see the trains. Even when I explain that the trains are far away, she says "Ok, see the train?". I guess another road trip is in our future. We all had a wonderful time so I can't think any of use would object to a sunny day spent together riding the train.
