Charter Day



Every March, Pennsylvania celebrates the charter that King Charles II gave to William Penn for the land between Lord Baltimore's province of Maryland and the Duke of York's province of New York. Every Charter Day all the state museums are open for free!



This year we went to the Pennsylvania Railroad Museum in Strasburg. This was an easy choice because of it's location and Kyle's love of trains.



Here are the girls waiting at a replica of an old train station. Don't they look thrilled?
Here is one of the trains in the museum.
This is what the kids were waiting for. Getting to climb into some trains and pretend to drive!

They couldn't wait to have Grandpa climb up with them!
Kyle had such a great time! He didn't want to leave!

  2. Is this where the train ride originates from?? Did they get to ride??

    I think Rachel and Sarah looked happier on Easter!!

  3. The Strasburg Railroad is across the street and privately owned. So no ride - it would be expensive for all of us to go! Plus it was cold!

    We will have to save up and go, it is fun to ride.
