The Little Rock Express

We found out earlier this week that Union Pacific's steam locomotive No. 844 would be passing through Little Rock. Originally it was due to be on display all day today so we planned a surprise lunch trip with the boys. Then last night, while watching the news, we found out that it would be leaving early due to the flooding. I was disappointed and I had been promising Joseph all week that we were going to have a special surprise today. I began wracking my brain for a great new "special surprise" idea.

This morning when I woke up I realized that I have little rooster boys who rise with the sun. We could go see the train before it left! And that's what we did . . . after a quick drive-thru at Krispy Kreme.

(yes - that is Joseph wailing in the background. despite his excitement, he gets a bit freaked out by loud noises.)
