Whistle Stop

Some of you may be wondering where I have been... well, last week I went to PARIS! And, some of you may be wondering when I am going to start blogging about my Paris trip. Well, I have a couple of blog posts to get out of the way before I start on my Paris posts (which, there will be a lot, hope that is ok!)... I am just a little behind... and, trying to get over being jet-lagged AND school starts on Wednesday for both kids, so its just been overall BUSY here.

Whistle-Stop
Before Paris,  I took the kids to The Whistle Stop. It was actually one of items on our summer bucket list. Its in North County, and I never even knew it existed until I was searching on Google for kids and train places. Its an old train station that is now an ice cream shop near train tracks that are still in use!


trains-at-top
The inside is really neat, there are little trains on top of the original ticket stand.


Boarding-Pass
We even got a boarding pass number for when our ice cream would be ready.


Autumns-cone
The ice cream was really good... Autumn got a cone, Nathan got a hot fudge sundae... I forget what Brian got, but I got ice cream on top of a hot chocolate cake slice, and the cake under the ice cream was amazingly fresh! YUM!


Kids-both-looking-out
Here the kids are looking out the back window at the train tracks... unfortunately, a train never came by. We asked and they said one comes by every hour and a half, and there is always one that comes at 3pm and 8pm. We got there at 3:30pm and never saw one and we were there over an hour! Oh well! It was still fun!
