Today, Dexter and I rode our neighbourhood bus over to Old Strathcona, to meet Don and some colleagues for a special street car ride and luncheon! I decided to be a bold mommy and not take a stroller. Dexter kept a pretty good walking pace from the bus stop to the street car - I just kept telling him we were going to see his daddy and he came running.
Once we arrived and boarded the street car, Dexter got himself a seat, and positioned his favourite gorilla toy.
Generous volunteers of the Edmonton Radial Railway Society gave some information on the history of street cars in Edmonton. Plus, they conducted our ride!
Dexter was making a little too much noise. This is what his face looks like when mama deals out a little discipline.
But soon enough we were on our way! Thumbs up, gorilla friend.
Our street car stopped in the middle of the high level bridge. Good thing nobody had a phobia of heights.
Then it was time to get up and party!
We ate delicious sandwiches and cookies from elm café. Dexter likes the BLT and the roasted beet sammies, and ginger snap cookies.
What a wonderful way to spend the lunch hour! And it was a treat for Dexter to ride both new and old forms of Edmonton's public transport.
