Washington DC Trip: Train Fun

Dan and I dropped Brutus off Thursday night and left Maggie with my mom at breakfast Friday morning. I already miss her little face! It didn't help when my mom called and Maggie told us "I love you, daddy. I love you, mommy." I hate and love leaving her at the same time.

Written Friday:
So far the trip is good. Although, I am only an hour into our train ride. If you've never rode a train, you should if you don't mind long hour rides. You have SO much more room, your seat goes all the way back, and you have a foot rest that pops up. We're riding from Durham, NC to DC and the ride is about 6 1/2 hours. It would be shorter in a car, but since its Memorial Day weekend and we're going there, traffic would be horrible!!!

I am starting to get a little nervous. I tried to make sure I packed everything, but its hard when you wait until the last minute. I am such a bad procrastinator. Actually, I guess that would make me a good one. To get back to my point, I forgot my deodorant. Sigh. Its horrible. We were in such a rush this morning that I forgot to borrow my husband's, too! So now, ever so often, I have to "scratch my head" and see if I smell. Really hope there's going to be somewhere I can buy some. I hate smelling bad!

Pretty much how he spends most of our trips together.

macro setting for eye closeup
Being on a train for 6 1/2 hours can get boring.  If you're ever bored you should take closeup pictures with the macro setting on your camera.  Haha, its pretty entertaining.
