Choo choo!

Storm’s birthday was over the Jubilee weekend, so we postponed her treat for a couple of weeks as everyone was away on the big day. Something tells me we won’t get away with that next year…

I’ve wanted to go on the Avon Valley Railway (real steam trains!) for yonks, so this was my perfect excuse, haha.

We packed a picnic, roped in some family and friends, and somehow secured the only sunny day in a fortnight of rain. Hurrah!

I wish all train stations still looked like this…

They swap the engine from one end to another half way through the journey so we got to see this…

Everyone seemed to like it…

And then we had cake (lemon – yum)

And went home. Job well done I think.

Happy birthday chickie!

    Looks like a brilliant day for all. We cycled down one holiday recently not intending to go on the train but it was running and Josh absolutely loved it. x

    Poop poop! It looks like a fun day – and you managed to pick one without rain!
