Western Railway Museum

On Saturday morning we surprised Logan with Daddy having the day off and we took a trip to the Western Railway Museum in Solano County, it was there 14th Annual Pumpkin Patch Festival. Although we had already taken him earlier in the month to the Pumpkin Patch we though it only fitting since an authentic (re-built) train ride was on the schedule. Not only that but there was hay bale fort, hay rides, live music, games and much more to do at the Pumpkin Patch. A fun filled day for a fun filled boy!

We arrived promptly at 10 am, as the train was scheduled to depart at 10:30. Logan was beside himself when he saw all of the trains. The conductor was sure that he was crying because he was scared, but Mama knew better, he was excited on wanted on that train. Luckily once I told her that she insisted that we board 15 minutes early and enjoy our seats on the train. Which we did, as you can see.........

Logan didn't quite understand what the ticket was he was holding was all about but we promised him the train would be taking off shortly and he would hear the bell ring. Sure enough promptly at 10:30 the train departed and we made the 5 mile treck out into the country (about 20 minutes) to visit the pumpkin patch and festivities. There was so much to see and do Logan didn't know where to begin. But Daddy did, the hay fort of course.

Then it was off to the Pony rides.........Logan's horses name was Prince. I thought that was well suited for my little Prince.

We walked around and enjoyed looking at the animals in the petting zoo, Logan was quite enamoured by all the kids his age there. Running around hugging little kids he didn't even know. Too cute! Once we could tell he was all tuckered out and Mama and baby giraffe (that is the baby in my belly) were quite hungry it was time to head home and get some lunch and put Logan down for his nap. So we headed back up the hill to await the next train to depart to take us home.

We will be making this an annual Caldwell family tradition that is for sure. Although we will be bringing a picnic lunch with us next year and hang out longer.
