Happy Father’s Day
Author: atsf121

Friday was my last day of work for my now former employer of 24 years.  We were visiting my in-laws in Simi Valley for the week and I decided we needed donuts Friday to celebrate my last day.  As I was loading my youngest two in the car, we heard a train horn, so continuing a tradition of chasing trains that my Dad started with me when I was little, we hustled to the end of Yosemite and watched an LA bound Metrolink head towards the Santa Susana tunnel.  After grabbing donuts and groceries, I checked the Transit app and the next LA bound train was due in a few minutes.  We parked at Simi station and walked up to the platform to watch the train come in. The engineer gave the kids a friendly toot-toot on the horn and a big wave which they loved!  Wish I had a video of that, but snagged a photo of the dynamic duo as the train departed.  

Happy Father's Day to all the dads and father-figures out there, hope you had a nice day.

 Awesome! Especially the donuts part! BIG pat on the back for doing family man type of stuff with your kids. They grow up fast. I hope that this is one of many track adventures for you all.
