Last weekend instead of having a big date night for our wedding anniversary, we had a family fun day. Saturday afternoon we went to the Mid-Continent Railway Museum.
The museum is pretty unique with a large collection of restored railroad cars, and the highlight is the ride on the real locomotives. We’ve gone the last few years and always enjoy it.

The railroad museum is run by volunteers. Its impressive to look at all the restored cars. Unfortunately when we were there it started raining while we were on the train, so we didn’t get to look around.
The conductor told us about the history of the museum and the group. He mentioned that there have been commercials and movie scenes shot in the area and with the trains.
He said a few years ago, a tourism commercial was shot here. But it wasn’t for Wisconsin tourism, but Illinois! Come to Illinois, where they shoot their Illinois commercials in Wisconsin!
Allie loves the train.
Peyton liked the train too, though he got cranky halfway through. We managed to keep him occupied by giving him Mama’s camera bag to play with. He slept all the way home.

I am a running working mama. We work hard and play hard and I have a lot to share along the way.
