They had no idea where we were going, or what we were doing, until we hit the parking lot at the Depot. Alex recognized it as the train museum we'd visited last summer, and Justin had a sneak peek at Thomas the Tank Engine as it pulled into the station with another load of happy passengers. He was very excited. Alex was a great sport (I had assured her that the second part of Adventure Day was more for her).
There's the conductor-- the train was all decked out in buntings and crepe paper for the exciting ride! After about three hours at the festival, we were ready for some lunch, so we hit my FAVORITE restaurant in Duluth for some great local food- The Duluth Grill. The kids LOVE the library they have. Alex read an entire Magic Treehouse book in the time we were there! Justin picked a very apropos selection.
