Buses and Trains
Yesterday we had an adventure into town. The highlight for Lochlain was the walk on the overpass over the freeway where he could marvel at the cars racing below him. So excited! We caught a train to Glendalough and had to get on a bus to the city because of the trains being out of service into the city for the Mandurah rail link up. Wasn't too much of a hassle, the guards helped me get all three on the bus with no drama and Will loved being on a caterpillar bus, a new experience for him. The boys loved it. It was a bit tougher than I expected because of the bus transfer, but all in all, everyone was really helpful. I had Lochlain in the E3 with the bags in the baby bit, Tristan in the Hug-a-Bub and Will walked everywhere for me. We had a bit of an uh-oh moment on the way in, when Tristan had a poo-splosion, but thankfully I had invested in Cute Tooshies this week and he was well covered, and we had no blowouts! Fantastic! We had a look in Myer, and went to Borders to get part of Ava's birthday present. The boys got to pick out a book each and they both chose the same set of books in a box set, so no arguments. YAY. We watched some buskers in the mall for a bit, and went and got a cold drink in Carillon, and we made our journey home again. Will loved every minute of being on the train, so much to look at. Lochlain fell asleep on the bus from Perth to Glendalough, so thank goodness I took the E3. They were so exhausted from their day out and about, Will was asleep by about 6pm and Lochlain soon after.
