A few people know that the Peanut lives for trains. OK – everyone he meets on the street knows that he lives for trains. He’s obsessed with them. He could play trains 24 hours a day if we let him. So, when the south branch of the Frontrunner commuter train opened up, Grandpa made sure that we took a ride. Of course, it was the middle of the day on opening day which means that it was PACKED, but we still managed to find one seat next to a window. We spent the next hour checking out the scenery from Murray to Lehi. Peanut was in heaven.

Here they are with Bub checking out how FAST we were going (up to 85mph!) and looking for "the farm."

Here's Bub and grandpa looking at "the farm" on the return trip. This was where Bub grew up from age 12. It was an awesome place out in Bluffdale - lots of acreage and space. As a kid, it was kind of lonely. As a teen, it was a good place to have a party and skip school. As a grown up, we sure wish we could have bought it from grandpas instead of him selling it to someone else when the upkeep became too much.

I think grandpa misses it. Bub definitely does. Granny definitely does NOT.
