Dinner Train (Adventure)

29th December 2007

Kristine’s parents treated us to a ride on the dinner train in Spooner, WI, and it was awesome! It was also an adventure because the train got stuck in the snow and ice at one of the road crossings. The total trip ended up being 3 hours from 6 until 9 which started to stretch the kids by the end — but they were troopers. See the pictures below from our adventure.

After we made it back to the station at the end of the ride, I ran outside to start the car to warm it up for the ride home.

Our kids made it back, although they were VERY tired especially after all the dancing (see below).
