New Year's Day Activity

Alvin and I gathered everybody up yesterday and rode the newly opened "light rail". When I first acknowledged several weeks ago that I wanted to ride the train a few family members turned up their noses. It opened on Friday and 150,000 people rode the rail the first 2 days. Going on the sixth day was busy but not a huge amount of people to deal with.

We boarded on Dobson and Main with no plan as to where we were going. Our goal was just to eat dinner somewhere. Everybody liked the experience so we rode 45 minutes and got off at Central/McDowell and walked across the street and ate dinner at the Spaghetti Factory. It has been many years since I have been there and it was a fun place as well. We than walked back across the street and took the 45 minute ride back home.

We will do it again! A fun afternoon and evening.
