Something that I am really enjoying at the moment is our weekly Sunday family outings. It is a pattern that we seem to have fallen into and one that all of us are really enjoying.
To Rascal, Sunday is synonymous with trips to the museum. She has become very at home in the museum and knows exactly what she wants to see each time that we go.
This week, however, we decided to try something new. We went to the Plains Railway. Rascal was initially disappointed that we weren't going to the museum and continually asked us to turn the car around on the way there, but once we arrived she was easily convinced and by the end of the day she was requesting to go back next week.
Along the edge of the railway was a pioneer village consisting of various heritage building - a fire station, a printers, a church and a couple of shops to name but a few. These were fun to visit and explore, but the real highlight of the trip was our trips on the steam train (yes purchasing a ticket allows you to go on the train twice!).
Depending on the day that you visit, there are different trains to travel on, but when we were there we got to ride on a Rogers K 88 Steam train.
Rascal adored standing at the front of the carriage, holding on for dear life and repeating "I'M not scared! I'M not scared!"
I just loved the decor of the old train. The signs; the lights; the wrought iron details, the beautiful woodwork. So much to look at, inside and outside the train!
Such a great family day and one that we will definitely be repeating! Where do you like going for family outings?
