Choo-Choo Get Away


We're getting away for a few days!


Our daughter and her family gave my DH a wonderful birthday gift this year - we're going on the Grand Canyon Railway. We're driving to Northern Arizona, staying overnight and getting on the train Saturday morning for a scenic trip to and from the Grand Canyon. My DH is a railroad buff so this is the ultimate birthday gift for him.

This is will be the perfect start to my 365 Challenge - so I'm going do a small paper journal with notes so I can start my "quilt" as soon as we get back. You can read about this exciting Challenge on Leanne Beasley's blog and Linda has started a Yahoo group where we can all share.


See you in a few days! Miss me! :-)

I took this train a few years ago. It is a lot of fun! There is a little Wild West show before the train ride begins! I saw a rainbow on this trip where I could see both ends touching the ground. It was amazing! Have fun!

Have a lovely time Darlene. What a thoughtful gift from your daughter's family. The Grand Canyon is truly one of America's most beautiful sights. Hope you both enjoy yourselves. Also, I can't wait to learn more about the 365 Challenge!
