Daisypath Happy Birthday tickers

This blog captures my thoughts and observations of Amelia since there are so many wonderful things I want to just bottle and enjoy. Time doesn't stop and while I will have memories, it will be nice for both her and me to have these in-the-moment snapshots of her life.

Labor Day Weekend

We traveled to KY over the holiday weekend and rode the Railway Museum's steam train. Amelia had lots of fun running up and down the aisles and exploring the empty seats as well as both ends of the train car we were in.

Since we were staying at a hotel, I brought swimming gear including a pink zebra floatie which was a big hit. Amelia liked it so much she sat in it after her bath, too.

We also took her to the state park where she had fun running around and chasing her ball. As Daddy observed, the irony in this is we sought out the area of the park that had a playground, yet she was content to play ball in the woody area next to the playground for a good 15 minutes. When we take her to the local college campus to run around and play ball, all she wants to do is climb the steps of the various buildings!

My favorite shots from the weekend come from hanging out in the dinner train parking lot the evening we got into town. We were going to take a walk in the historic downtown area and the train just happened to come in. Amelia was overjoyed! She hadn't yet seen the train at the museum since that was the next day. Once the dinner train was parked, we let her run along an extra track. She was so excited about it, too!
