So I neglected actually the funniest part of the trip. I must start by saying that the kid, as you know, is into trains. But not so much "real" trains, toy trains see. Thus our adventure on the Tennessee Railroad was a disaster because it was hot and there was a wait and those things don't mix with a three year old. He threw such a fit that I asked the Husband if we were on our way to Auschwitz or something.
But no, that's not the funny. The funny was that the kid's favorite part of the trip was our stop at the Casey Jones Village in Jackson, TN (a mere hour from our home). We stopped there for lunch (it's like a Cracker Barrel) and they of course had toy trains so what was supposed to be a stop on the way to Nashville for a bite ended up being 3 hours so he could play with, you guessed it, the toy trains.
All that planning, ALL that planning, and we really could have just had a day trip. We plan to take him again this weekend as on the bright side, good to know that something relatively close does cause delight...as I'm running out of ideas!
