We took a quick trip to Duluth this past weekend and were joined by our neighbors and their kids.
First, went on a train "adventure" called A Day Out Thomas.
Here is the one and only picture I got of Thomas. We were running late so we didn't have a chance to take pictures before we boarded, then when we disembarked at the end of the ride we were shuttled straight into the railroad museum--so the kiddos didn't get to "meet" him.
I think Oliver and Henry thought it was pretty cool. Henry even dressed up like a train conductor!
The girls were less impressed with the train and were just having fun together.
The $90(!) train ride also included admission to the train museum and various kiddo-oriented activities. I love this picture of Oliver and Emelia--if only they were always this nice to each other!
Emelia really got into posing in front of the trains.
Yep. Definitely over the camera-shy phase.
After the train outing we went down to canal park for a picnic and let the kids run around for a while. Then we walked down to the pebble beach and threw rocks in the "big lake."
Emelia thought that just standing next to the lake was dumb, she wanted to go *in* the lake. I took this picture just before she ditched her dress so she could sit in the water. I love her spunkiness.
