my first train ride | peaks and pits

2013-03-21_0001

last saturday, i had the pleasure of experiencing my first train ride!!! so exciting!!! i can’t believe i am almost 24 years old and this is the first time i’ve ever been on a train. shame on me. so glad i’m able to cross that off my bucket list. justin’s dad had tickets to ride the steam engine from roanoke to lynchburg. apparently it’s an annual thing and happens every spring. pretty cool!

it was nice just looking out the window (without feeling motion sickness haha). next time i’ll remember to bring a book, though, for when i need to take a break from the sightseeing. you can tell justin and i got a little picture happy towards the end.

here a few pictures from my first-train-ride-ever experience! haha.

have you ever been on a train before?!

  • get to help second shoot a wedding with the lovely arli quinn photography this weekend!

  • i feel like some of my newer kids at school are starting to get the hang of the routine MAYBE (bribing them with candy doesn’t hurt either haha)

pits:

  • taxes!!!! – EWWWWW!!! so my aunt and i went through everything and got everything organized. we made an appointment with a CPA and it took over an hour for us to see him and he STILL was busy and unable to see us (even though we had an appointment – messed up, right?). totally peeved and now we have to do the same thing next week. yucky!
  • SNOWWW!!! okay y’all, i am ready for WARM WEATHER! it’s spring!!!
  • along with the yucky weather, i’m ready to get out of my winter funk.
