Y'all? Silverton has never been as cool as it was when Banner was in town Because, according to the little guy, Thomas (as in The Train) lives there. I don't think I've ever seen him so excited.
|The engineers think it is hysterical to blow the train |
whistle and scare the pants off the little ones.
(Note: It is pretty funny)
|Lunch with my favorite little man.|
Despite the fact that Banner was game to ride the train 3+ hours back to Durango, we thought he would enjoy a shorter ride instead. So we took him to a place we had not been in years; the Old Hundred Mine.

|Underground his orange raincoat looked pink. |
Everyone thought Banner was a girl.
|Note: 2.5 year olds get very little out of the tour.|
To cap off the experience, the little guy spent about thirty minutes panning for gold. I wish we could say that we were retiring in luxury thanks to his efforts, but - sadly - no.
