DSC_9398Anna knew right where we were when we drove up the drive way: “Meme.  Poppy.”  I think she was happy to be getting out of the car but it was adorable to hear her as we approached my parents’ house.  We stopped by for a little visit on our way back up to Connecticut after all the holiday festivities.  The ice had melted and we were ready to have more fun on the farm.DSC_9382

We made a family field trip to the transportation museum in Downtown Roanoke.  We rang bells, saw models of the circus, and sat in the engineer’s seat.  There were cars, planes, a telegraph office, and plenty of room to run around.  My Dad even found an engine he worked on when we was at General Electric.DSC_9373

The men took plenty of pictures while us ladies just mosied on around, exploring, touching, and playing with the matchbox cars and ramps.  There was a switch to turn on the relic light announcing that there had/hadn’t been an injury in so many days; we flipped it on for Anna several times.  Even with a bonked head and a trip up the stairs, our little girl was a trooper and had plenty of fun being an engineer and watching the trains.
