A trip on a train

Jack loves cars, trucks, bikes, fire engines and TRAINS! We had nothing planned today, so I asked him if he'd like to go on his first train ride. Lots of cheering and excitement followed. We quickly got dressed and went up to the station.

I bought a ticket for a station half an hour away and thought we'd get off once Jack was sick of the train.

He was amazed by the seats, the stairs, looking out the windows, going through tunnels etc. We got off 15 minutes into the trip which was actually a really good spot to stop as it was right on the water.

We went to a cafe and had an ice cream and then went for a little walk and watched some work men using a digger. It was such a relaxing day. It only took an hour and a half, but it was great :)

Sick of sitting in the seats, we moved to be near the doors and hung about
