Vacation, Day 2

We started off the morning at Forney Transportation Museum.  Zephyr really wanted to go there to see the Big Boy locomotive.  My family had already been twice since Tiger was born, so it wasn't as big a deal to us.  This first photo shows off their personalities really well.These riding toys are new since we last visited.  As you can see, they were a big hit with our boys.  They did trade rides after we had seen most of the museum.

Playing dress-up in the Model T.
Blanket didn't see much of the museum. I kept walking so that he would keep sleeping.  He fell asleep about 20 minutes after we got there, and woke up about 20 minutes before we left.
Enjoying a non-alcoholic brew after the Coors tour.

Group photo at the brewery.
Zephyr "enjoying" his very first anchovy at Woody's Pizza in Golden.  About that Browning hat: it may seem annoying at first look, but it makes him really easy to find at large or crowded venues.  It works just like a beacon.

After lunch we went to the Colorado Railroad Museum.   This is probably where Sgt. Benelli took the most pictures.  It was 92 degrees and I spent most of the time keeping Blanket in the shade, or inside.
I love this picture of Leprechaun as he looks at the model through the glass.
The men and boys on the restored mail car outside.
Tiger and Leprechaun in front of a rotary snow plow.
Froggie's favorite part of Sgt. Benelli's train obsession is these little powered rail carts.  She was trying not to melt too.
