This last weekend we went on the skunk train. it is a train ride here is fort bragg. they have a few engines that they take out for about 1-3 hours. I have wanted to go on it since we moved here. in fact, I have wanted to go on it since I started coming here for camping 5 years ago. we got lucky. Normally the tickets are $50 each. too rich for my blood. there was a tunnel that collapsed and we were able to benefit from that. they were giving rides this weekend that was for 1 hr total. and it cost us $27 for everyone. we even got half off since we live here. Braxton slept most of the way and Olivia loved it.
it was really a peaceful ride. the train only went about 5 miles per hour. not too fast. but enough for us to see everything.
This is Braxton climbing up the stairs. Yes, we are to that phase now. just today, he started standing up on his own and balancing. it is only a matter of time before he starts walking. I love seeing the milestones. I feel like this year has gone by so fast. just a year ago, ben was getting ready to graduate from Chico State for good, and we were looking for a job. Braxton will turn 1 in less than 2 months. I love him so much. it is fun to be home with him. I caught his coming up the stairs and he was so proud of himself for getting as far as he did. silly boy.
Ben has 2 possibly 3 weeks left of Track. and I can't WAIT!!! it has been a long year. but every night, he comes home and we eat dinner right away since he doesn't come home until 6pm. them after dinner and before the bath, actually while Olivia is in the bath, he comes out and plays with Brax. I LOVE IT! and so does Brax. he can't get enough of him, and loves when he comes home. funny, cause every time I say dada to get B to say it, he just smiles. it is fun to watch.
