Trip to England – Part 3

August 23rd, 2009 · by sarra · No Comments

Day 4 We woke up early on Friday to catch our 9am train to London King’s Cross from Northallerton. We left Link with Granny (who was making him some oatmeal) and PopPop took us to the station. Link was indifferent to our departure, though I think we got hugs before we left. I’ve tried to [...]

Trip to England – Part 2

August 1st, 2009 · by sarra · No Comments

After Bolton Castle, we stopped at the Black Sheep Brewery in Masham for lunch. It was a bit crowded, but Kit did an excellent job parallel parking the car. We played “I spy” while waiting for our food, and then Link refused a bowl of spaghetti and ate a few fries (we commented on the [...]

Trip to England – Part 1

July 11th, 2009 · by sarra · No Comments

I’m a little late in the telling, but here goes… We went to England to visit Granny and PopPop in June. We left on the 15th at 7:30 pm, and arrived at 8:30 am on the 16th (Alex’s birthday*). Right off the bat, I’d forgotten the travel pillows I’d purchased specifically for the trip, but [...]

Christmas Trains 2008

January 1st, 2009 · by alex · 1 Comment

Avid readers of this blog will remember this post where I said I was working on a new layout. Well, I’ve made good on that promise. The idea was to make a semi-permanent layout that could handle two trains, and still go around a tree. So here’s what I did: I took a 4×8 piece [...]

Sorry for the late update, but here’s the lowdown on the Kell Family Halloween 2008. The weekend before Halloween, we went to Boo at the Zoo. This is the second year we’ve gone. It was a hit again this year. Link had a great time trick or treating, and eating his candy while we waited [...]

Alex got a new kitten today. Her name is Lady Benezia. The New York Kells were visiting for a few days, and on Thursday while I was at work they stopped at the PetSmart to look at the kitties up for adoption. There was a cute gray tabby there that they all took an interest [...]

We went to visit the Great Smoky Mountain Railroad last month. We drove up to Bryson City, NC on Saturday, rode the train through the Nantahala Gorge, stayed overnight and drove home Sunday morning. We kept our destination a surprise from Link. We just told him that we were going on a special trip. He [...]

Train Update 2008

October 7th, 2008 · by alex · 2 Comments

If you’re following this blog, you may remember a post about two years ago on the resurrection of my father’s old trains. Last year we bought some new track and made things work a bit more smoothly. This year I got the bug to do a little more. I was inspired by our trip on [...]

Family Portrait

September 17th, 2008 · by sarra · 1 Comment

Link’s teacher asked us to bring in a family portrait for this week’s lesson. Ever the obedient parent, I set the timer on the camera and took a couple snapshots. Link also brought home a picture he drew of his family. It’s actually recognizable as people. I don’t know how much help he had, but [...]

Mei Lan’s Birthday

September 7th, 2008 · by sarra · No Comments

We went to the zoo on Saturday to celebrate Mei Lan’s 2nd Birthday. There was a special members’ only event in the evening. There was a brief rain squall as we were driving to the zoo which made it a bit humid, but also probably kept some people at home, so the zoo was probably [...]
