All About lil o' Me

My photo
Just call me your Budget Barista. I have been married for 20 years to the best man on this planet. He's sweet, caring, kind, but most of all he makes me laugh. We have Three adorable kids. A beautiful sweet pea girl, A 'superman' boy, and a love bug baby girl. We just love that we live where people vacation...where the ocean meets the sky. We live a wonderful life. I love my life and I thank Christ for giving it to me. Some random things about me are I enjoy baking, quilting, paper crafting, jewelry making, scrapbooking, and loving on my family. I am a Princess in the Kingdom of the King of Kings, diet coke drinking baby kisser. We are a homeschooling family but are part of a hybrid program where the children attend a 'classroom' 2 days a week and we do the rest at home. It's a blast. We also love to vacation and explore God's world around us. I think that's enough for now. :-)

FREE Train rides you whole family will enjoy on the 3rd Sat. and Sunday of the month!

Do you have lil' train lover like I do? Boy, do I have a little nugget for you.  In Costa Mesa on the 3rd Sat. and Sunday of the month the whole family can enjoy a train ride...FREE!!

Public ride days are the highlight for the club.   They are conducted on the 3rd Saturday and Sunday of each month from 10 am until 3:30 pm.   In 2006 we gave rides to over 30,000 people.   The club has a variety of engines and riding cars.   Trains on public ride days are made up of 5 to 6 bench cars that seat 5 to 6 adults and children.   Rides are FREE however, donations are welcome and help with the upkeep of the railroad.
Our primary interest is running a safe and first class railroad. Members take great pride in the design and engineering of the facility.   Many dedicated volunteers donate countless hours keeping this railroad safe for all who share the joy in "riding the rails".

A typical trip takes about 12 minutes and covers two loops of the park.   Bridges and terrain variations are just part of the scenery as is the back end of the Costa Mesa Golf Course.
