* 5 yr old + 2 hr train ride = love *
Took the day off to ride a train with the family. The Blue Ridge Scenic Railway. Very cool. In all it was a 4 hour excursion: an hour ride, 2 hours in a little town on the TN-GA line, and an hour back. And the railway did not disappoint. The conductor came by and punched everyone’s tickets, there was a concession car with fresh popcorn & drinks, and the sweetest guide ready to answer questions & give us a little history lesson as we wound our way through the gorgeous scenery of the North GA mountains.
I don’t think my nephew sat down the entire ride either way. He’s been a train fanatic since he could talk and he was on cloud 9 all day. The rest of the kiddos had fun too. At one point Kelsey leaned over to me and whispered: This is the best train ride ever.
Gramm & Popps, I think it was a success. Thanks for a great day!
