Trains & Grandsons

Occasionally a grandfather hits a home run. Sat. I took Sam, Jacob ,Layne, and Brik to and outdoor train museum in Chandler. Since I have always had a great interest in trains this was not a hard task for me. This museum has some 35 different train engines, cabooses, dinning cars, smoking cars, passenger cars, sleeping cars,and kitchen galleys. Possibly the best part about it there was no supervision and you could get hurt. Unlike today's rubberized playgrounds set up with soft ground cover we were climbing into, on top of, and through real trains. The little boys had to be helped up and down the ladders. The only thing we did not do was get on top and jump from car to car. Maybe next time.
