Light Rail: a taxpayer's nightmare; a four year old's dream
John has Mondays off and so every week he tries to go on an adventure with Jack. This is one of the things I appreciate the most about my husband. He is such a fun and involved daddy. Last week he took Jack to ride the brand new Light Rail. They drove to the Bethany Home station and parked and then rode the train all the way into Tempe to meet up with Grandma and Grandpa Kramer for lunch.
Jack was thrilled with the whole trip and especially liked going over the bridge at Tempe Town Lake. John had to of course call me every now and then during the trip and express his political outrage that this tax boondoggle ever got built in the first place. He also noted that at a few points they got passed by a pedestrian who was walking the same route.
