Justin has been nagging us to take him on a real train ride through our very own Metro Rail Transit (MRT). Last November 14, when we went to see his Daddy’s doctor for a checkup, we yielded to his request. We went to Ayala Terminal, got MRT cards a.k.a train tickets, went down to the train station, and waited for the train to arrive. At first, Justin was daunted by the loud sound of the approaching train, but he soon got over his initial fear when we finally made it inside.
Because he is such a fan of Thomas the tank engine, he thought we were actually riding either Thomas or Gordon. He even asked me where the Fat Controller is. LOL! We opted for a round trip to give our son more time to experience being in a real train. He already rode twice last week, but he insists on riding again. He just can’t get enough of it.
Did your kids have a grand time on their first train ride, too?
