waiting for the train
On Wednesday last week Taylor and I rode the light rail train, Max, to go into downtown Portland to visit Trask for lunch and to play at his office for a bit. It was such a fun day!!
Taylor was super excited to ride the train, and loved almost every minute of it! He doesn't like when the train stops at the other stops, he gets nervous that we are going to get off the train. He always seems to make friends on the train, too, and this trip was no exception.
When we got off the train at PGE Park downtown, Trask was there to meet us. Taylor was so excited when the train stopped and he saw his daddy outside waiting for us - he ran the whole way to get to him and climbed into his arms, after charging at his knee caps.
We went to lunch at Tropical Smoothie Cafe and watched a bit of the Beaver game on TV. We then went to Trask's work and visited some of his co-workers and played with 2 of the dogs that were in the office, Astro and Sasha.
Taylor and I rode the train back home together. He loved going through the tunnels, and loved seeing the cars driving next to us on the freeway. He's so much fun on the train - it's a good way to spend time when we don't have much planned and it's gross outside.
Taylor hopes you all will join him on a train ride, he's always looking for more train-fans.
