Choo Choo

I have to admit I was just as excited to ride the train as the girls were. The train runs from downtown to the Mall of America which was just perfect for us. We bought our tickets...actually we bought 10 kids tickets. We have no idea exactly how we did that but it added up so we got on the train anyway. It stopped often and in a few places went really fast. The train was so quiet and actually very relaxing. Minnesota is really a green city. There are buses that run on hydrogen and places to put your bikes all over the city. People walked or rode their bikes everywhere. I am happy to say we parked our car at 8:00pm on Monday and didn't drive again until 2:00pm on Wednesday.
