Part of my blog is going to be about
Things to Do When You Visit
In October, 2006, our daycare along with the teachers, caretakers and our children went to the Florida Railroad to visit their Pumpkin Patch and hay rides. It was a very good trip and a nice long ride. All the conductors and staff were happy to be there and dressed the part of old fashioned railway workers.
Once we arrived, we got our tickets and discovered that even though the sun was shining brightly, it was also very windy and quite cool. Some said it was down right cold. We walked through the parking lot over to the train track and waited for the train that would take us to the pumpkin patch where we would pick our pumpkins. It took about ten minutes for the train to come. When the train arrived, we heard the toot! toot! of the train horn. Then I saw it coming along the track. My baby Morgan was very pleased with riding the train and so was I. We arrived at the pumpkin patch and everyone got off to go for their pumpkins. We did some photos in the hay bales and danced to some fun music they had playing. Morgan didn't really care as much about getting a pumpkin, she cared about looking at the train that was making all those big sounds.
After getting our pumpkins, we got back on the train, went back to the train depot, which was also the home of the Gulf Coast Museum and checked everything out there. We went with some of our friends, so we grabbed some hot dogs from a stand they had set up and talked for a bit before we went home.
Lots of fun for all and I would certainly recommend going to the Florida Railroad Pumpkin Patch ride every year for everyone that loves trains or has little ones. They had a scary version for teens and young adults too.
