It's that time of year again... for STREET CARS!
Not to be mistaken for trains (the Edmonton Radial Railway Society guys are very particular about this), the High Level Street car ride is a super treat for Dexter. With baby Alice's arrival, we are making sure to go out and do things that are fun for little D too. So off to Old Strathcona we went, and caught what I believe is the No. 33.
On the way, Dexter demonstrates how he is relatively the same size as a fire hydrant.
Since I am nursing, baby Alice goes wherever I go.
Street cars are partly so charming because of their history. I love all the squeaking and the sounds of bells.
And finally, two months after everywhere else, we have blossoms!
I am a fan of flat shoes for my "mom" moments. The other day I was wearing Shellys. Also, these street car seats are super cool since they switch back and forth. You never have to ride backwards if you don't want, or you can change the seats so you're facing your fellow passengers.
Public transit from the past, way more social than single-occupancy motor vehicles today.
Dexter likes to wave at people outside and tell them, "We're riding in the street car!"
Over the bridge and back again.
During our ride, baby Alice woke up once so I fed her on the return journey. She is proving herself very portable and happy to eat and snooze while out and about, just like Dexter (thankfully) was. If she is like her brother, then she will be less excited about napping on-the-go when she is more aware and curious. For now, I'll enjoy the portable infant who likes the sleep-inducing rumbles of being pushed about in a stroller!
