(another) Big Big Steam Train

You may remember seeing and reading about a trip we took to Knoxville, TN to ride this Steam Train. I have two boys (well one hubby and one son) that are a bit over the top with their trains. Big trains, little trains, model trains, Thomas trains, etc. So because of this I am always looking for unique train opportunities. I'm surprised at the great things I've been able to find within less than an hour of us. On Sunday, we went to ride the Lebanon Mason Railroad. We've been on this train before, several times actually. However this ride was different because a steam engine from 1930 was be pulling the train. You may or may not know that there are only a very small number of WORKING steam trains left in the U.S. So this indeed was a pretty special event. And was even better because some of our dearest friends, The Allard Family, joined us.

Brianna holding Lucy on the train, she helped me all day. I barely did a thing when we went out to lunch afterwards, she entertained and fed Lucy during our (very) long lunch.

Gisela and Mia, who will be 10 months old tomorrow.

Brady asking me for the 100th time "when can we go to the outside car?"
Mia and Lucy
The fire and the coal! So amazing.

See Brady?

Isn't this a *perfect* family shot? LOL Oh Brady.
This is the face he makes at the camera about 95% of the time.

Jenny.. That looks like a blast! We've done the Easter trip and the Pumpkin picking trip at the Lebanon railroad before. Good times!
Eryn went thru a phase when she made a goofy smile everytime we took a picture! Don't you love it.. Now if I want them to even look at the camera I have to ask for a funny face!
