Well, it is hard to believe that Big T will be 4 in just 7 days! He is growing up so fast. Even though he hasn't officially had his birthday yet we took him down to my parents house this past weekend. We did this so that his Grandpa and Grandma could take part in something he has been asking to do for a long time...and that is.......He has wanted to ride a train. The Hocking Valley Scenic railway is a place where the young and young at heart can take a 14 mile (or longer) train ride that also includes a 30 minute stop at Robbins Crossing which involves pioneer cabins and the like. The children absolutely loved it and I wanted to share pictures from our trip.When we took off from the train stations Big T had the biggest smile on his face!
He loved going over the bridges too (at least the river had some water in it due to the recent rain.)
This is a decent picture of the family. Little E isn't with us. He was asleep on Grandpa's lap at this point.
Here are a couple of pictures from Robbin's Crossing. I believe this is a workshop that has a scroll saw powered by the user peddling. The second picture is of a one room school house.
This is a picture of the passengers getting off of the train. The children really enjoyed themselves.Here are a couple of videos of our train ride. Each time the whistle/horn would sound Sweet E got so excited. I thought it was really cute.
When we got home we had a chance to visit with my sister and her boyfriend as well. Then came dinner and Big T's cake! I am so glad that he liked it. It could have turned out better, but for doing a "rush job" it is pretty good.
Next is a picture of Big T riding his present from Grandpa and Grandma. The picture after is of Sweet E and my sister's boyfriend, "E". Sweet E had so much fun pushing "E" around on the bike. It was too funny that I just had to get a picture.
