The Dinner Train

I am still trying to get through all my vacation pictures. I only have a few more pictures, so I will probably end up doing at least one more vacation post.

My dad actually had to fly back to Lexington for a day to go to an important meeting. He left on Thursday and was back by Friday night. We had originally planned on all going to dinner together on Friday night after dad got back, but his flight got delayed so we ended up heading to Pier Park for the night without him. We were sad that dad wasn't with us, but had a great time!

We tried to go to Jimmy Buffets Margaritaville for dinner, but it was packed. We decided to go next door to the Back Porch instead.

I really love this picture of Breck. I don't know why, but I think he looks so cute. But then again, I always think he looks cute! Ha, thats why I am his aunt. :)
Mom and me at dinner. We were actually on the rooftop deck and had a great view of the gulf.
The cute little Tatem family.
After dinner we took Breck on a train ride around Pier Park. He LOVED it! We told him during dinner that we would be going for a ride on the "choo-choo" and that is all he could think and talk about.

Boarding the train
Aunt J and "Go" on the train. Mom had always said that she wanted Breck to name her. Well, he apparently decided that "Go" would be a great choice and that is what he calls her. It's actually really funny to hear him say it. We have no idea where he got the name, but it seems to be sticking around.
Breck and Kristin
Doesn't Lee look thrilled? Ha! Lee decided not to ride the train, so he just sat off to the side and watched.
Breck was waving to people that we passed. So funny.
When we were waiting for our train ride we saw these huge trampolines. You put on a harness type thing and it would allow you to jump really high. We saw a little boy that looked to be about Breck's age get on it and love it, so we decided to see if Breck wanted to do it too. Sure enough, he shook his head yes and we decided to let him try it. I will be honest, I thought he would freak out, especially when they started to put the harness on him.

Getting ready to jump..

This next picture cracks me up! It pretty much sums up what he thought about it. Despite my worries, he did not freak out at all when they put the harness on! Kristin had told him what to expect and I think that helped. The whole time he just had this blank stare on his face, even when he started jumping. He did smile a few times, but for the most part, he just had a funny look. I don't think he loved it, but I also don't think that he hated it. I do have some video of it but the camera is moving up and down so much that it almost makes you sick to watch.
I think his favorite part was after they took off the harness. He immediately started jumping on the trampoline, and loved it!
We had a fun night and at this point I was just happy to be feeling better and finally spending time with my family!

Have a happy Monday.
