|checking out their ride|

But about a half hour in, they started to get a little antsy. Luckily, there was a concession/souvenir car that Josh took them to visit. They came back with a new hat (and some Cheetos!).
And when that novelty wore off, they resorted to their usual mayhem. Luckily, the car was fairly empty, so they could practice being choo-choo men and doing some general roaming!
As you may have been able to tell from the pictures, it was a rainy, freezing day (so cold there was even some sleet mixed in). All along our path, there were tons of people standing outside in that mess just to watch the train go by. I couldn't believe it! Let's just say I was much happier to be inside that darn thing. Seriously, though, it was a pretty neat experience, and definitely a unique way to spend our Sunday. Josh remembers going on a similar ride when he was younger (his grandfather also worked for the railroad), so hopefully our boys will look back fondly on their own ride! Lucky boys, I tell you!
