Epic Train Trip

by

Do your kids love to go on adventures? Mine do, so with this in mind I took the twins on a train trip to the city to visit their Aunty Kay for lunch. I was not sure how this would go as it takes us two hours to just get to Central (for those that don’t know Central is the main train station in the city that you can change trains and that is where the train terminates), then after Central we had to get a train to the city.

It was a big day. Thank god for technology I had my iPhone and the Google Nexus, however the iPhone ran out of power quite quickly and caused a few arguments.

The girls loved the train but after a while it got a bit much. I got questions like, “Mummy is this our stop next?” and “Mummy when will we get there?” I did explain that it was a long way and I will tell them when we get off the train. The girls were very good and I was very proud of them. They did not misbehave at all and on the whole were very good. Both kids on the way there did not need to use the bathroom, so that was good planning or just good luck, not sure.

We made it to the city, and to Kay’s work o.k, kids were happy and super excited to see Aunty Kay and where she works. Pity we could not stay longer as Kay had to return to work and we had to get the train back home. Although it was not for long staying in the city, the adventure was with the kids having their first train trip to the city and sharing the adventure.

On the way back Lillian slept all the way up the mountain and Julia played the Nexus without having to fight her sister for a turn. It was a big day and we were very tired once we returned home.

The weather was fantastic also as it was the first time in weeks we have had blue sky and no rain! Heaps of washing to do and I am out and about. Thank god today as like yesterday it is blue skies again. I managed to get four loads of washing done so that is good.

What fun adventures have you had with the kids these school holidays?  Send in your comments.

    Our boys love trains too and buses. In fact they also love our car, mainly due to the dvd player 🙂 Note to self, take more devices on next long train journey.
    Great post btw!
