Daniel rides PATCO

Anyone who knows Daniel knows that he loves trains and all forms of transportation. We have been wanting to take Daniel on a train ride somewhere locally and this week due to a canceled golf game Poppop suggested a Wednesday adventure. We first took the 17 bus to 8th and Market. There we hopped on the PATCO train to New Jersey. Daniel was so excited to be riding on Thomas (his words, not mine!). We rode across the Ben Franklin Bridge and got off the train in Collingswood NJ. There we walked up Haddon Avenue and had lunch at the Pop Shop, a soda fountain that specializes in grilled cheese sandwiches. We had a nice lunch and Daniel even got a balloon from the waitress. Then we headed back for another train ride back to Philadelphia and a walk through Rittenhouse Square back to Mommom and Poppop's house for a long nap. Daniel had such a great time and can't wait for his next train ride (R5 from Elkin's Park maybe?)
