Saturday we celebrated little man's birthday by going on a train ride. Since he is obsessed with all things train related we thought it would be fun. While on our way to our destination the train came to a halt and sounds of gun fire filled the air. No need to be alarmed our train was getting robbed. No, not for real. It was a pretend robbery that the kids loved!
(hubby's brother and his girlfriend Kendra)
(yep, robbed at gun point..teehee)
After the train ride we ate lunch, opened a few gifts and watched a cattle drive. Yep, I said a cattle drive. It was a small one but little man loved watching the longhorn walk through the street.
(I wish I could have gotten better pictures but they wouldn't let us off the curb. Like a massive animal with massive horns is dangerous or something... sheesh...)
(Whatever your palette could possibly want, they had it)
(This is what $21.73 worth of salt water taffy looks like. Hello 9lbs that I just lost looks like we'll be getting reacquainted.)
Once we had done some damage at the candy store it was time to go. Time to load back onto the train and head home. It didn't take long for little man and Cohen to fall asleep after their very eventful day.
(hubby was trying to get his phone ready to take a picture.)
(My sis snapped this shot. LOVE. I love that Cohen will fall asleep on you. I was wearing a strapless dress which creates an interesting illusion.)
(Disclosure: I am in no way making fun of southerners. I am one. I was born and raised on a huge ranch with cattle, 1 horse, 2 dogs, a cat and 1 fish. My husband says my southern accent really starts to come out when I am frustrated....which makes him laugh at a not so great time.)
