Happy Fourth!

Happy Independence Day! Nothing feels quite as American to me as a good old fashioned Iron Horse. So even though we technically took this historic train ride yesterday, on July 3rd, it still felt like an all American way to celebrate. Today we enjoyed our local community parade and heritage festival. Sack races and butter churns, a brass ensemble band and loads of red, white and blue. It was absolutely charming and very old fashioned. Here's hoping your Fourth is fun and bright and charming too!

BTW I was the only adult on the train in an engineer's cap. Let alone overalls and neckerchief. I'm becoming my dad, and my kids couldn't be happier. For now. We'll see how they feel when I show up to their middle school events in costume. HA!
