Much Needed Fun



Thanks to redeeming some of our Air Miles points, we had a great time on the train and visiting our friends for the day.

The best part was seriously the NO CAR SEAT THING!!!

Oh what a difference.

Our friends live an hour away and close to the train station, so we after we got off the train, we just walked to their house. They were there to greet us and there to wave goodbye. It was a fun trip. No driving for me...no kids stuck in a car seat...eazy peazy.
So neat to see things NEW again. To be excited WITH them as they saw the train up close and handed over the tickets. I have to admit, that I was just as excited as they were. O.K...so having kids can be fun. They were not a burden to me today (see previous grumpy post). They were great...and fun to have around. I needed today. We all did.

Sounds like a beautiful day! Yay for outings without a whole lot of planning (and carseats!!)

Happy days!

I hear your friends had a very very good time.
Now that you are seasoned train travellers you can take the train out to Alberta sometime:)

VERY cool! What great memories you and your kids made yesterday! Isn't it amazing how much smoother things go without carseats?! Looks like it was an awesome day.

How fun! We're going to take the train to TO to go to the zoo in July when the military is paying for it (I'm the only one who has to pay and my ticket is %50 off). I know the kids will love it!

Thanks for a fun day. It was nice to have adult conversation while the kids entertained themselves!
