North Shore Scenic Railroad

Ava and Mommy had a special outing together on Friday while Daddy worked and Emma played with Marmie. We drove all the way to Duluth to ride a train along the North Shore! Ava loves trains, so when my friend, Heidi, told me about a 90 minute train along Lake Superior, I had to take […]
