Riding On A Steam Train
I must admit, I was a bit apprehensive about how the girls would go being 'stuck' in a carriage for a length of time. However, with the novelty of riding on a train along with a sandwich and some snacks I'd packed into a lunch box for her, Grace was happily occupied and didn't ask once when the ride was going to end or if we could go home. Similarly, Sophie couldn't have been better behaved. She didn't grizzle or whinge once, was happy sitting on our laps looking at all the other passengers and together with some food to nibble on and a breastfeed on the return journey, she was more than happy.
For me, the highlight of the ride was the return leg - the girls spent the majority of the time gazing out the window at the forest, waving to people waiting in their cars at the train crossings, pointing out creek beds and streams and looking out for animals in the paddocks we passed.
Do your family have Sunday outings? Do you have a family favourite?
