Yesterday was an exciting one. The boys and I headed out bright and early for a drive up-island to the forest museum. They have a real steam train which we planned to ride all day long! You can imagine the excitement as we set out. First stop, Tim Horton's for tea and timbits! And then up onto the highway and over the Malahat.
Once we arrived, they were wide awake and ready to go. We met up with our friends, Sheila and Lee, and their little boy Noah, and headed for the platform. We got on the train and headed for the picnic area.
The picnic area has a great playground. The boys had fun playing while we got our lunch all set up on the picnic table.
Here they are on the platform again, ready for ride number 3! Remember the engineer hats from Dylan's 4th birthday party?
Sheila hung out in the old school house with Sawyer so Dylan and I could climb up to the lookout tower with Lee and Noah. The view was amazing. Dylan was especially excited to be able to see our van in the parking lot!
We have a had a few very busy days. I think today I'll make a big jug of iced tea and we'll just hang out at home, have lunch in the garden, read some books... Sometimes lazy summer days are the best.
