Choo Choo Train Ride - Part 2

After the train ride to Downer's Grove, we met Brad and Denise at Egg Harbor for breakfast. Here we are trying to eat and keep Ben entertained. Breakfast has nothing on a train ride.

We headed along the tracks to Brad and Denise's house after breakfast to hang out since we had an hour to kill before the return train arrived.

Ben loves bikes. He had to stop to point them out to us.

For some reason Mike and Brad decided it would be fun to do a push-up contest.

Ben wanted to participate too. His idea of a push-up is to lay on his stomach and roll back and forth. Adorbs.

After the push-ups, which Brad won, they did a plank contest, which Mike won.

Ben got in on that too.

He lasted all of 10 seconds before he just laid down and rested a bit.

Next was pull ups. Ben was all over this one.

Look at those muscles!

Once the iron man competition was complete, we headed back to catch the train home.

It was a great day. I'm sure we'll be taking another ride soon, as Ben still mentions it daily.


  1. that looks like so much fun (the train ride I mean, not the man-child challenges) I want to do it when we visit next time.

  2. Impromptu push-up and planking contests? Why do I feel like I am looking at Jack and Tucker 10 years from now?

  3. Ben is too cute! He is all little boy. That train ride looks like fun. I get a kick out of Ben's mischievious little grin.
