At the depot

On Sunday, Uncle Tom noticed the Amtrak train was running about 12 hours behind, so instead of arriving at 5:45 am, the schedule was much more reasonable for a visit by his train-obsessed nephew. It proved to be further delayed, but Tom and Owen watched videos of train arrivals to pass the time as we waited at the depot downtown. 


Owen was incredibly excited and clearly understood what was about to happen (also, he was super cute).

When the train came into view, he actually shuddered and didn’t say a word.

Owen and Tom were in good company. While there were a number of people at the depot, only one boarded—the rest were there to watch the arrival.

Owen regained his composure in just enough time to wave at a conductor and say, “Bye, bye, train,” and “Thank you, Uncle Tom.” (Indeed, thanks, Tom!)

    gotta love those bright blue boots! What a fun outing for Owen – he might want to do it again, and again, and again!

    Owen would have loved where we worked today — a choo-choo train every 20 minutes!
