Planes, trains and automobiles. Mr Two absolutely loves everything and anything that is fast, or has wheels or simply goes! So on a lazy Sunday, a third Sunday of the month to be exact, we took him to see some miniature trains for the first time!
He absolutely loved it.
We took him to the Altona Miniature Railway to enjoy the sunshine last month before winter set in. We arrived there after 3pm (it closes at 4pm) and as soon as we had parked, Mr Two was raring to go! He met up with his friends, and us parents loved seeing the kids enjoy the trains. We enjoyed it too!
A lovely breeze, excited passengers and happy, friendly operators filled our afternoon with rides along the railway and toots and whistles as we passed the other mini trains and their passengers. I’d have never had been to this place if it wasn’t for Mr Two – I’m so grateful that he gets us experiencing loads of different things and watching his face light up in the meantime is just pure bliss.
Making memories 🙂
The above two pics are from the Altona Miniature Railway’s Facebook page which you can find here.
As soon as I told one of my workmates the following week where we had been he got excited and told us there were a few more hobby miniature train places to visit like the Altona one! His next recommendation was to check out Diamond Valley so that’s on our to do list since Mr Two has constantly been wondering, “When are we going to the mini trains again?”.
I can’t wait to take him and this time bring his cousins and the grand and great grandparents along for some family fun outdoors.
Where have you been making memories lately!?
All smiles and a tick of approval from our little ones!
