Both of my boys like trains, but Dino really likes them. This Christmas we introduced him to Polar Express. I wasn't sure what he would think because he is only 2.5 years old, but the next day I heard him muttering about losing his ticket. We quickly made him his own golden "Ticket to Ride" and he carried it around with him. The day after Christmas we decided we needed an outing.

This year Nofolk, VA finished their light rail system called The Tide and one of the few stops is just over a mile from our house. We jumped in the car and headed up to ride The Tide to the MacArthur mall so the kids could play on the playscape inside.. This iPhone video captures their ride.

For those interested in the footage, it was all captured on my iPhone using an Olloclip lens. It is a wonderful piece of photographic equipment for the iPhone.
