The kids rode cardboard boxes down the hills of dry grass for an hour or two.
We were so excited to "ride the train". Since they were testing the line this week, everyone gets to ride for free! And I do mean EVERYONE.
It was very crowded, but that just added to our excitement!We went as far as Mill Avenue in Tempe and got off to take a short walk to the park. The kids played around for a while,
we all used the facilities, (I think they're getting ready for the Fiesta Bowl Crowds)
and then we headed back to the train.
On the way home it was even more crowded (above are some random strangers who looked like everyone felt - The Thrill was GONE) , and we were in a standing room only crowd. So my kids ended up sitting in the aisle.
But it was a really fun day! Thankfully, I was up late last night making dinners for the next week or two. We were able to get home, pick up a loaf of french bread and just heat up a pot of delicious potato soup in 10 minutes! Tonight I think we're all going to bed early.
