Wordful Wednesday

To celebrate the 4th of July my hubby and I took a trip on the Heber Valley Railroad. It was a beautiful day. Sunny and warm with a breeze.



The round trip took 3 hours. We both had such a relaxing time.



We saw these birds nesting on a telephone pole and couldn't figure out if they were eagles or hawks or possibly something else.


Then the Bad Guys robbed the train. The robber above got caught with his pants down!



This guy was looking right at us and REALLY wanted to shoot us. Lucky for us he took pity on us and passed us by.




And a trip to Heber City is never complete unless you eat at the Dairy Keen. I swear these are the best burgers in the whole world...OK, maybe in Summit County (oops, Wasatch County. Sorry)!


I also looked for Amy , Park City Girl, the whole time I was there. I was hoping we bumped into each other.

For other Wordful Wednesday's stop by Angies.

Stopping by from SITS to say hello. Beautiful pics. The train robbery reminds me of when we took the train to the Grand Canyon. They did the same thing. It was fun.

I'm SO glad you "shot" the bad guy before he could shoot you! That was such a fun way to spend the day. Beautiful.

Looks like white heads on those birds to me--I'd say eagles. But that's just me!

I've been wanting to take my kids to do this when we visit Utah. Is it the same place that does the Polar Express in the winter?

I'm not sure how I'm just seeing this NOW - sorry Marrdy :/ Sounds like a fabulous day! I've yet to go on the creeper - seems like to long to confine the little ones :) But Dairy Keen is a fav!!
