I’ve had some awesome chocolate chip pancake makers this week. Quite the little cooks we have
One thing the boys and I did last week was to make a summer bucket list. I’ve wanted to do this for several summers and never made myself. This year, we did it. We wrote down about 8 day trip places we wanted to visit. We are shooting for one a week. On the weeks we have baseball camps and vbs, we may be hit or miss. But, we started today. The rainy weather has dampened our campground ( yes we are still camping :)… I may never go home. Keeping 250 sq feet clean and my kids of devices is just about heaven in my book). We hit a home run on our first summer field trip. The Sam Wilhite Transportation Museum of trains in West Point, MS. To say my boys were awed is an understatement. There were so many trains running on a massive track in an actual old depot. Mr. Terry Craig runs the museum and is a wealth of knowledge. He had so many interesting stories for us. Rigg especially was very vocal about this love for the trains. I had no idea the history of the Railroad in Mississippi. We enjoyed our first field trip very much. I highly recommend it. We did not have time for lunch in West Point but if you make a morning of it and want lunch, hit up Anthony’s Market or Nightingales Bakery, both serve a fabulous lunch. Today was special and my boys really enjoyed the outing. It’s only 20 minutes from Columbus and a great treat. Take the time to visit, your little train enthusiasts will thank you.
It’s located on Depot drive in West Point. Go past Anthony’s and turn in between the little liquor store and and the next street. It’s on the train track.
Open Thurs-Sat. from 10-5pm. Donation of $5 per adult and $1 per child.
