Owen and I had a mommy-Owen date last Saturday. We went to Old Sacramento and went to the California State Railroad Museum. We also took a ride on a train and got lots of yummy food! We had a great time, and I was happy to be able to spend so much time with just him. Anyway, here are the pictures from our trip!
|Owen in the fireman's seat in the cab of one of the trains. |
He LOVED learning about what everything was for and what
everyone's job was.
|Pretending to buy us tickets.|
|This museum was AWESOME. We spent about four hours there, |
and easily could have been there much longer.
|This train had a bunch of telephones in front of it, where you could listen |
to a recording talking about the history of trains in the area. Owen thought
the 20 phones all lined up was so cool. I had to drag him away several times.
|Can you see my tiny little guy standing by the sign? This train was HUGE. |
This is the one where he got to sit in the cab.
Waiting for the train ride!
|Waiting for the conductor to punch our tickets.|
|Free cookies and drinks!|
|At the half way point, they switched the engine from one end of the|
train to our end so we could go the other way. We got to stand
there and watch them hook up. So cool!
|The train driver!|
|Owen thought the horn was too loud. :)|
|The turntable at the museum - we got to see them turn a train around and pull it into the museum!|
|The dining car!|
|The Pullman sleeper car. They had the lights turned down and the |
windows covered in this one, and made the whole thing rock so it felt
like you were actually on a train. It kind of freaked Owen out...
but we still went on it five or six times. :)
|Golden Spike! One of them, anyway.|
|Mini donuts to finish off our day!|
