The Zilker Zephyr - A New Favorite.

Yesterday, in a fit of pre-vacation fever, I decided to take the girls to Zilker Park to spend the morning playing on the playground. After Ava's first train ride on the 4th of July, she would wake up in the middle of the night yelling "choo choo!" excitedly, and has been obsessed with trains ever since, so we decided to take a ride on the Zilker Zephyr. It. Was. Awesome. Seriously, it goes around a lot of Zilker Park, including the Great Lawn and over Barton Springs and Town Lake, making for a fantastic view! I was worried that since the train ride is over 20 minutes that she would get antsy, but she was mesmerized:

S & P loved it also!

Sitting like a big girl!

Mama and Ava (excuse the tired-mom look I'm rockin'. It was not hair washing day lol)


  1. It's one of our favorite Austin activities, too! I used to love to go at Christmas, back before Austin cheaped out and took away the Trail of Lights. We would ride through during the day and look at all the different Trail of Lights displays - the kids loved it. We still go over Christmas break, but it wasn't the same this year with no Trail... :-(

  2. Aww, what fun! I should take Asher on a train ride soon - I bet he'd love it too!

  3. @Missy they are bringing the trail of lights back this year!
