Duluth May 2010

Excited about seeing the BIG choo-choos!

WOW! Mo choo-choo, mo choo-choo...

Grant and B checking out the view from a steam engine!

Brendan enjoying the Roller Derby Action!

On our way home, we stopped at a store in Danbury and B HAD TO HAVE this Buzz Lightyear fishing pole. He's already for the fishing opener!!!

Last weekend we packed up and took a little road trip up to Duluth. We figured it had to be now or we wouldn't be able to get Brendan up there to visit the train museum for a long time and he needed to see the train museum! It was a BLAST!!! We started our day at the train museum where B was in heaven...running from train to train exclaiming "Mo choo-choo, Mo choo-choo", exploring the insides of some of the trains and even playing with some Thomas trains for a short time. He was not happy when we had finished up and were leaving, to say the least. After visiting the museum, we went to one of Grant's favorite CD stores the Electric Fetus and then out to lunch at Pizza Luce. While at the CD store, Grant was not able to find a CD he was looking for that you can ONLY buy at that store and so we asked the ladies working the checkout counter about it. They looked, but were out of the CD by the band Cars and Trucks. The lady said "I'm on a roller derby team and they are playing during half times tonight, you should come!" While we were at lunch we pondered this rare oppourtunity and decided to buy tickets and experience our first roller derby and B's first rock concert. WE HAD A FANTASTIC TIME!!! Great family entertainment, good music and just a different part of life experienced.

We stayed the night on Saturday night at the Country Inn and Suites by Spirit Mountain and had a wonderful hot tub (or pool for Brendan) room. B loved "swimming" in it and Grant and I also got to relax in it with him for a while.

All in all we had such a great time...

That sounds fantastic. We'll have to maybe visit this train place in the summer up in Duluth. I bet Ben would love it.
