Field Trip

Woo hoo! What a fun morning this was. Remember the swimming ladies? I know, it's hard to recognize them with clothes on. This morning eight of us boarded the Frontrunner and traveled to the big city, a first for all of them except me and Mom. For a few of them it was the first time they had been on a train since riding a troop train way back before I was even born. They also talked about riding the Bamberger in the 40's. This was a little different for them. The ride was smooth and air conditioned, a necessity since the temp outside right now is 96 degrees.

After the Frontrunner ride we transferred to Trax and rode downtown to Lamb's Grill. It is a wonderful old-fashioned cafe right in the heart of the city. Established in 1919 it is now designated a Historical Site. When you walk in the door you feel as if you have stepped back decades in time. If you haven't been there you are missing out on a treat. We were lucky enough to get a cute waiter named Kevin who thrilled everyone by showing off his various tattoos and being a good sport with eight women, six of whom were between 75 and 90 years young.

After lunch we made the return trip home. This was very fun day and the ladies loved seeing all of the changes that were taking place. More field trips are being planned for the future.

L-R: Karen, Mabel, Joyce, Kevin, Arlene, Arlene, Marge, Elaine and me.

That looks like an awesome day! I'm glad that you had fun and even more glad that Numismatist is actually in one of the photos!

It was the best day I've had in a long time! Thank you again for planning it and we definitely need to take more field trips (obviously in Ogden!!). ;-)

Happy 4th!
