Stuck in the Station, Riding Trains and Wanting to Sled Down the BIG Hill – Tacklerism Travel Tuesday

The Tackler had a full day today… and tomorrow will hopefully be even more interesting and fun for him.

This morning, he ran around a train station for over two hours, demanding to know where his train was.

"I see another tunnel!"

Then he enjoyed a two hour train ride, where he proudly mastered the skill of opening the doors between train cars and pointed out various mountain outcroppings and every tunnel.

Finally, the afternoon was topped off by some sledding, courtesy of CG the Sledder Puller.

And The Tackler said:

“Daddy, I want to go all the way up the BIG hill and sled down.”

To which Daddy laughed uproariously.

Tuesday, he has his first day of ski school: for a boy who has only seen snow once at his home and during three visits to Mimi’s house.

"Why won't my arms go down... and what is this white stuff?"

It could be a disaster.

It could be the most awesome time he’s ever had.

Here’s hoping his thin Texas blood doesn’t kick in to where he just thinks it’s cold and wants to go inside.

Oh, and Lil Diva had some fun walking around two – except for the two face plants she did when she bent too far forward in her snow pants.

**Excuse the poor quality of still photos – I am stuck with my camera phone. In true Vacation Curse, our camera decided to make like a Windows 98 computer and crash. It claims to be too “busy” to take a photo – it’s own version of the blue screen of death.
