I love going to the Union Station. We had a birthday party there on Saturday for my now 4 year old. It was pretty fun. He wasn't the only birthday boy there either. There was another little boy who was also named Jack having a party there. It was just great seeing how many different types of people love trains. From the two birthday boys, to the little old lady in the gift shop. There were a bunch of old men from a train club having a little swap meet there, or as the old lady said, selling their junk to each other. The kids ran around playing on the old trains and watching the model trains, while the dads stopped at the boring displays and read the same things that have been on the walls all the other times they have been there. Trains seem to be a bridge between the generation gaps. The old guys would just smile as the little guys ran past. It was a great way to spend a Saturday.
