I Hear the Train A- Comin'

We had a couple of days off from school recently, so we decided to ride the Frontrunner train to Salt Lake....yes, all the way to Salt Lake... We talked some friends into coming along with us. Parker, however, was not interested in accompanying us on our excursion. (I guess he had enough of riding trains with us when we were in New York over the summer.) That's okay. We managed to have fun without him. When you arrive at the Frontrunner station in Salt Lake, you can transfer free onto Trax (SLC's light rail for you out-of-towners). We hopped on Trax and rode it to the Salt Lake Public Library, where we explored and browsed. After that, we headed across the street to the City/County Building, where we happened to catch a local TV reporter filming a segment for the news. Alex even asked him for his autograph, which he graciously gave him.

Next, we headed over to the Gateway for lunch, along with some window shopping and sampling all the wondrous scents in Hollister. (The jacket I wore that day still smells like Hollister.)

It was a fun-filled day enjoying some of the sights, sounds and interesting people of Salt Lake City.

How fun - I wish we could just hop on a train and take a short trip. The kids looked like they were having a good time and it does not go without notice that you've trained your daughter well - beautiful smile for you each picture.

I took that train when I was in SLC for a ER nurses convention. It was very convenient. What a fun trip!
