Train Trip to Hanford

Several of my Fresno friends suggested a train trip to Hanford during Spring Break for Owen, so he and I went for it.

We boarded the Amtrak at Fresno's downtown station and enjoyed the 30 minute ride south. Owen and Spooky commented on all the sights, and upon arrival, we walked to downtown Hanford. Their town square reminds me of the one in Back to the Future or in Paris, TX, take your pick.

We made the obligatory stop to Superior Dairy (that's what the Fresnans said to do), where we shared a milk shake at the counter. We walked and walked and walked, window shopping and taking a quick break at the Hanford library to read books and play computer games. It was a quick and cheap trip, and Owen was exhausted by the time we made it back to Fresno. Frankly, so was I.

But, I consider it training for our upcoming trip to Disneyland. The 4 year old needs to get used to no stroller and the 32 week preggo needs to get used to no Rascal scooter. And at Disney, I'll be 35 weeks. YIKES! I'll be my own attraction. :)

You'll be the cutest thing at Disneyland. Altho I must admit that going to Disneyland at 35 weeks sounds crazy to me!

When are you doing this craziness?

I wondered if you guys would hit up DisneyLand anytime while you are living somewhat nearby. Fun times! Easy for me to say, since I'm not the one 35-weeks prego at the time. :) Owen is too cute and looking so grown up. Can't wait to hang out with him sometime soon.
