The joys and sorrows of a stay-at-home mom, wife, home economist and woman.

{this moment}: Steam Train Edition

In lieu of my normal single {this moment} post, I wanted to share an adventure the whole family shared last weekend.

Inspired by Soule Mama

A Friday ritual. A single photo – no words – capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember.

If you’re inspired to do the same, leave a link to your ‘moment’ in the comments for all to find and see.

This past Saturday, the whole family drove to Tavares to ride the Orange Blossom Cannonball, a steam train built in 1907. Jonathan was so thrilled! He has talked about every day since, and I hope it is a day he will never forget. They do a special ride for Christmas, and I think we may try to go back for that one.


The Tavares train station.


Jonathan played on the really cool playground while we were waiting for the train to arrive.



Here comes the steam train, pulling into the station!



We found some seats in the coach, and very eagerly (but solemnly) waited to depart.


The whole family!


Mommy and Aurora.


Here we go!


Jonathan enjoyed meeting the conductor.


On the caboose.


Jonathan was fascinated by the big wheels.

Some cool pictures of the train.
