Yep, today is NATIONAL TRAIN DAY!
We went to the dedication ceremony at the historic train station building in Longview. We got to look through a portable train museum and hang out with some important train people. There was also some very interesting people watching.
I took some sweet pictures.
These next photos are my absolute favorite shots. I love how lines converge back to the horizon. It has such a beauty to it.
It was a great train day…
We all don’t like the same stuff.
I like to look at art, create art, purchase art supplies, pinterest, photo apps and blogging (of course).
My girl child likes cute outfits, the Disney channel, old sitcoms, curling her hair and pestering her brother.
My boy child likes toy guns, real guns, hunting, fishing and Mario Bros (that is the current game he’s into).
My husband lives to hunt, fish and talk on the phone about fishing and hunting, oh, and Mario Bros.
No matter what we like though…we can always be together. We live in a great home together. This holiday break we are on is such a time of blessing, because we can just hang out and do nothing or whatever—and still have fun JUST BECAUSE we are having Family Time.
You can read blogs, books and lists about tips to creating “family time,” but the best way to do it is just DO IT. Don’t map out some crazy plan or get technical help on getting your family to come together in one place. Unity can be created by doing anything– anytime. I do suggest not looking at your phone or talking on the phone while trying to have the “FAMILY TIME.” (Bobby!) That really is my main tip, if you are wanting a tip. I do admit that technology can sometimes take away from this important time, but it can also enhance it with fun games to play together or things to read and look at together.
The main word is TOGETHER. Don’t talk about it, JUST DO IT… STOP reading this blog and get to it.
This video reminds me of the pencil analogy…
You can break one pencil, but put a group of them together (like 10 or so) and there is no way you can break them.
WE ARE BETTER TOGETHER!
This is just one pic from today. There were so many.
It’s all about family—even when your goofy together—the MAIN thing is that you are TOGETHER!
Hug your family and remember to have fun with them! You never know when you may not see them again. Seriously.
