Good Saturday night, almost Sunday morning to you all! I hope this blog post finds you all well! In between the crazy and the mundane I have been doing ok!
This year the Boise Train Depot is celebrating its 92nd Birthday. To help with the celebration, Eriks Garsvo (Eriks works with the Boise Parks System as "Conductor"/tour guide at the Boise Train Depot and also works closely with the Nampa Depot restoring a vintage caboose among other things) got the Union Pacific to bring the Union Pacific Heritage Steam Locomotive No. 844 to Boise for the celebration! How totally cool is that? VERY!!! Since my sweet family couldn't be at the Birthday Party for the depot tomorrow as we are celebrating my Colton's 15th Birthday, we decided to go to the depot to watch the locomotive make its grand entrance at the depot and what a grand entrance it was! Holy canoli! It was so exciting and LOUD! There is a video linked at the end of this post. It was so fun to be able to watch this fabulous train make its way to our fair city!
Since I couldn't make it to Sunday's festivities, I decided that today would be a GREAT day to wear my Wearing History's 1930s "Gina Dress" and also take the opportunity to do a photo shoot. My very talented son Colton was my photographer once again and did a fantastic job! He is so awesome!
I tried a new tactic where my hair was concerned. Instead of just twisting my hair back into a bun, I did a whole bunch of curls around my face and pinned them up, then twisted the hair back into a bun. I know that I need a lot more practice in the hair area, but I'm getting there! And I think I am getting better with the 1930s make up. I'm thinking about investing in some Besame make-up as it's geared towards that lovely vintage look!
This time around with the pictures, I played around with some fun editing thinking it would be fun to have a more vintage look to the pictures Colton took. I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed wearing this dress and the super fun time at the Train Depot!
The Hair and Make-Up
The Photo Shoot
I couldn't help being a goof here! Colton was down below waiting to take my picture at the edge if a great precipice...Ok, it wasn't that great, but 10' into a pond of koi...ya, that's great! Anyhoo, I think this is one of my favorite photos!

Aaaahhhh...my fabulously sweet husband! He didn't want to take this picture with me because, "I'm not dressed for this!" Whatever you handsome devil you! You look gorgeous!
My Colton's Birthday was yesterday! He turned 15! I can't believe how old he is getting. I love this young man so much! He is funny, fun, has a great sense of humor, is kind, gentle, but sticks up for right and justice. He loves his family and friends with a fierce passion, loves rap music and playing the guitar, and he loves Jesus! I can't wait to see what the next 15 years bring! Happy Birthday to you my son!!
Union Pacific Heritage Steam Locomotive No. 844
My friend Eriks the Conductor. His face was beaming with his grin because he got to ride in the cab of the locomotive! What fun!
The sound of the horn at the end of the video was almost deafening! It was crazy awesome!
Ok, well, I am going to go to bed or I will be a zombie tomorrow. I hope you all have a marvelous Sunday!
