I will admit that we here at  Family Fun Twin Cities are highly dependent upon you to make sure we are current and up to date.

Case in point:  I got a message from a friend of mine today asking if I was planning on being at the UNION DEPOT for National Train Day. Until that message, I was completely clueless.  Absolutely clueless!  Then, I went searching around for this information so that I could make sure you know all about it.

So this is what I found out (this is all very exciting) and everyone can thank my good, sweet friend Jeanelle:


Saturday, May 10, 2014
Union Depot Celebration in St. Paul 214 4th St E, St Paul, MN 55101
11:00 am-4:00 pm
Waiting Room –when I hear those words together, I think of the doctor’s office, but I assure you that you will not be seeing a doctor–only celebrating trains!
Lots of kid’s activities–not sure what this might be, though.
Choo Choo Bob Show Live will be performing at noon, 1:00 pm, and 2:00 pm

About the author

Gianna Kordatzky

I am married to the craziest, most awesome man I know who goes along with me when I have insane ideas like traveling to Thailand for a 2 week mission trip and leaving the children home with Grandma!

I am in the process of parenting four rambunctious children ages 5, 6, 8, and 10. They wear me out daily, but they are incredible and I promise I wouldn't trade them for anything (except maybe a two week trip to Thailand--but then I want them back!)

I love writing and dream of being published by a real publisher. I love to throw parties and be with friends. I love to read my Bible and grow closer to God. I love to eat and exercise. I have learned to love coffee.
And I could really use a nap.
