We took a little trip down to Sunol on the 4th for a special train ride on the Niles Canyon Railway and barbecue/picnic lunch. My stepson met us there, and it was he who took these pictures of the train.
A short ride from Sunol to Niles and back in a beautifully restored passenger car, and a nice lunch afterward.
We didn't win any of the prizes with our raffle tickets, but I found a really nice t-shirt for my husband in the gift shop, and he bought a book and the little pin I've shown here with their brochure.
It was fun! We even got home early, and I still got to watch my Boston Pops before bedtime. You see, it isn't the 4th for me unless I get to hear them play Stars and Stripes Forever, and act like I'm conducting, and see the fireworks. That's how we spent our holiday - I hope you enjoyed yours!
