Colorado Railroad Museum

All aboard!

Do you have a train lover in your family? Or maybe a history buff? Or perhaps kids who love climbing on things, pressing buttons and playing pretend?  If so, this post is for you!

Recently the kids and I visited Colorado Railroad Museum in Golden and it was such a fun day out. Now, my kids aren’t really the biggest train fans (there was no Thomas the Tank phase in our house) but they sure do love climbing, pressing buttons, pulling levers and playing pretend, so they had an absolute blast visiting the museum.

Located just a short drive from downtown Golden, Colorado Railroad Museum is the perfect place for a day out. Visitors will find dozens of locomotives, passenger cars and cabooses on display over the 15 acre rail yard, a replica 1800s depot museum complete with a massive HO scale model, a working roundhouse and turntable, a garden rail yard, a library, and, the highlight, train rides.

Let’s take a look…

20+ Best Places to View the Golden Gate Bridge

The Golden Gate Bridge.

There's just something special about that international orange span across San Francisco's Golden Gate that pulls at the heart strings. 

Like the Eiffel Tower, Empire State Building, or Sydney Harbour Bridge, it's one of those landmarks that I will never tire of seeing, no matter how many times I see it. And trust me, we saw it a LOT in our eight years in the Bay Area as we had a view over the Bay from our Berkeley apartment. Every single day the sight of the towers peeking out over the fog made my heart flutter.

I know that this is a pretty common reaction for a lot of people, especially if you're seeing the Golden Gate Bridge for the first time, so today I'm sharing some of my favorite places to catch a glimpse of the bridge.

So in honor of International Museum Day today I'm sharing 29 of my favorite museums and galleries in the Bay Area.

Let's go check them out...
 

Mathilde's Science Party

A few weekends back we celebrated Mathilde's 8th birthday with a science themed birthday party.

When Mathilde chose science as the theme for her party I was super excited because I knew it meant we could do lots of fun, colorful and messy experiments with her friends. And what's better than making lots of colorful mess? Not much when you're eight - or even if you're a grown up!

We had all our regular party favorites including a piƱata (shaped like an atom) and a themed cake (shaped like a beaker full of a green solution) as well as lots of fun and messy experiments. 

Today I'm sharing all the fun along with instructions for the simple experiments we did. If you're thinking of throwing a science themed party for your kiddo (or yourself!) or just interested in seeing all the fun read on...
