Adventure day 2: Big train adventure

We made it to Cumbria! The train worked great, we left our house at 8am and got to friends house at 3pm.  We had seats almost the whole way - there was an hour of Isaac on my lap through a very busy part of the line.  The transfer was stressful - 13 minutes to get across Manchester Piccadilly (aptly named) carrying a car seat, a rolling suitcase, and not losing a 4 year old. But we made it!

There were lots of trips to the toilet, I think as a form of adventure. He doesn’t like the small toilets, only then big ones.

When we got here I ate lots of cheese with best friend, she had a party last week and has lots of left over cheese and crackers and chocolate cake. Can you see why she is best friend?

Today we are going to visit some old Roman stuff. It’s  not meant to rain. It feels like a holiday, not a Sunday. Yay! 


  1. I had to laugh at how nonchalant you are about "some old Roman" stuff - that sounds SO COOL!
    I'm so glad you only had to hold Isaac for a small portion of the trip and that it went smoothly. What an adventure - even the toilets!

  2. Sounds like a great adventure. I can't wait to hear more about it!

  3. "left over cheese and crackers and chocolate cake".... BFF for sure :) Enjoy!

  4. I'm glad you made it through that transfer and train trip! I look forward to hearing about "some old Roman stuff.'

  5. Enjoy your time. sounds like its off to a good start with cheese and crackers and chocolate cake...

  6. OK, you had me at cheese and crackers. Yum. And glad you survived with the four year old... in a way, thank goodness for the toilets. :)
