Our 2014 Tiny Town & Railroad Visit - Colorado

Last weekend we visited an adorable little town just west of Denver called Tiny Town with some friends.  It was a perfect day to check out the kid size buildings, train ride, playground and a picnic in the mountain air. Tiny Town and Railroad is a great place to visit if you are a resident of Colorado or a visitor.  I often forget about this kid friendly place but each time we go we love it!  It is great priced, has a playground and you can bring your own picnic lunch in and enjoy it at the many picnic tables.  

Our friends were in town and we wanted to get out in the cooler foothills air and enjoy our Sunday catching up and having our kids play together.  I have been friends with Jamie for a LONG time and it is a lot of now that we have kids around the same age.  Great playdate!  

Check out the fun we had!!
