Train day at the science center

Saturday was train day at the Pacific Science Center! We knew Declan would love it so we went down for the morning. First we checked out several of the model trains.

Then we went to see the IMAX movie Rocky Mountain Express. It was a great movie about creating the train tracks all the was across Canada. It reminded me of summer days spent in Spokane at Riverfront Park with Nana Hope and Papa Glen. Papa loved watching the IMAX movies and always was genuinely amazed at each  documentary. I couldn't help but think of how much he would have enjoyed seeing Declan amazed by an IMAX movie. I've thought of him a lot this week as it was the anniversary of his death on the 12th.

Anyway, back to our day. After the movie we went to see more model trains. Declan got a conductor hat. He also got to go for a ride on a model train! Declan rode in the red caboose and loved it!

We decided to get a season pass to the science center, since it pays for itself in two visits and we got a AAA discount! We're excited to take Declan back to see the dinosaurs,  butterflies and tide pool exhibits.
