Making the most of a day! Following meetings in New Haven, CT for my wife, the three youngest of our nine kiddos that were along were given the choice of where they wanted to go. The chant quickly turned to beach, beach, beach. When I mentioned having the 'perfect' place, my three-year-old daughter quickly named it the Choo Choo Beach! Of course we had a friend who lives a few minutes away from Niantic so she and her lil one also got in on the afternoon. While my wife Tonya and our 8, 3 and 8 month-old (chilling with bottle in my wife's arms), as well as friend her daughter, enjoy the beach time, Amtrak's Acela Express train 2160 rolls by behind on the Northeast Corridor with power car 2027 on the east end.
