Choo choo!!

Trains have always been a bit hit in our house, especially Thomas the tank engine. If you have no idea who he is ... Here's a pic:

We have many, many, many trains, a giant train table and frankly the kids love anything to do with Thomas. 

So, needless to say, the kids were thrilled when we went on a scenic little steam train ride through the town of Snoqualmie last weekend. Grant's parents gave Lila a trip on this train when she was 2, but she was thrilled to go again and Owen was super excited as well. Downtown Snoqualmie is an adorably cute little town with tons of boutiques, and the train runs right through Main Street - or "Railroad Ave." as it's called!  

We sat in the train car with open air windows - it was such a nice day too!

Leaving the station!! The ride is only about 45 minutes each way, and there's lots of stops to wave at cars. 

Here's Lila at one of the stops - choo choooo! 

The other cool part is that it goes directly to the side of the amazing Snoqualmie Falls with views of the Snoqualmie River. 

You can see the top of the falls here along with the historic Snoqualmie Lodge. So pretty! 

And that was it! The kids had such a fun time and frankly we all did. 

I love small, historic towns! Perfect for little day trips. After our ride we stopped at the Snoqualmie Brewery for lunch. 

And as soon as we got in the car to head home - poor Owen was out. Such a busy day for a busy boy!! 



  1. I have always LOVED the train too so this looks like such a blast especially for the kiddos! The scenery is gorgeous!

  2. That is so cute!! Sophie's boyfriend likes Thomas the Engine so sometimes Sophie will play with Thomas the engine with him.

    Looks like such a great ride and fun for the parents too! Hope you got a nap in there too!

  3. So fun! I ride a train to work every day so the novelty has kind of worn off for me but I love seeing how excited the kids are when they get on! And that little town is so pretty! <3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes
