All Aboard!

Over the holiday weekend we went up to the cabin for a few days, while we were there Grandma and Grandpa took us on a mystery trip!
Can you guess where? (Disney World was guessed by Kate, LOL)

Yep, you are right! We went to the Michigan AuSable Valley Railroad in Fairview, Michigan, how did you guess? 

So I never even knew that this 1/4 scale railroad even existed, especially in the middle of nowheresville upnorth Michigan, but it does and we had a BLAST, especially with my train lover Nick!

Check out the fun we had!
 Daddy and the kids.
 Don't forget to get your tickets! ($5 each)
 The train station and gift shop.
 The gas engine was running on the day that we went.  They also have a steam engine that was running the day before.
 The train engineer chatting with Nick.

Tooooot! Toooooot! There was even a 1930's truck at a crossing.
 The engineer, and owner, oiling the wheels.
 Old time log cabin along the route.
