We are a party of five on an overnight train to DC...so far so good. We had a late dinner in the dining car and are now settling on for a little sleep (hopefully lots).
I knew this would either be a grand adventure or an epic failure. (That's why we are flying back...just in case.) I am pleased to report it appears to be a thrilling experience for the trio, which makes it really fun for their parents too.
Memory making in progress!
