i think i can, i think i can...

ride the train up north again. it was so conveinient with the kids.
fullerton, ca
once amtrak get wifi, this is going to be the best way to travel with kids.

where else can u pop! popcorn listen to music from your iphone, play on the ds while traveling a long distance. not a long distance by air standards, but long enough that a car ride with these two monsters, would surely be a nightmare! "mom, he's touching me", "mom, she's laughing at me", "mom, he's looking at me"! yah...nope! can't see it happening again!

plus, u don't have to stop at a rest area to use the "funky"restrooms either. the restrooms are right there, nice and clean. and if you forgot to pack snacks, the cafe is just below or 2 carts away! it was fabulous.

the only downfall, is...the constant stops. which make the trip a bit longer than by car. and, along with those constant stops...you pick up the most interesting people! some you wish customs could screen before getting onto the train. but...it takes all kinds to make the world go round. so, in oder to make lemonade out of lemons...i made the weirdos a learning experience. "see kids what happens when you don't make the right choices in life..." or, "that's what u get when you don't go to college..." it made for great conversations. especially, after we pick up 2 street crawlers that sat behind us, knowing the kids were in the seats playing games, etc.! anyway, they sit behind us and they just bombed us with f~bombs, to explain why his baby's momma.....blah!blah!...f~bomb!..., blah!

so what did i do? thanked god for the speaker on my iphone and blasted imelda's johnny got boom boom from the pandora app to tune and flush out their filthy mouths. that might have been how the, "see what happens when u don't go to college..." conversation made its' debut!

all in all, we had a great time up north. ps~ i'm luvn' the pics off the iphone!
