Metrolink to Pasadena, April 14th

When Harrison gets on a miniature train ride whether it’s at Descanso Gardens or Balboa Park in San Diego, he always throws a tantrum.  I mean he just doesn’t want to get off.  So we decided one day to take a “real” train to the Norton Simon Museum in Pasadena.   Our mode of transportation?  The San Bernardino line Metrolink.  It was only $9.75 round trip per person and the kids were free.  We began at Pomona North to LA’s Union Station.  There we got off to take the Gold Line, a service line that takes us to Memorial Park Station in the middle of Old Town Pasadena.  The fare was included with our purchase of a round trip ticket on the Metrolink.  On our arrival we had some Chinese.  Finally a nice brisk walk to Norton Simon Museum only took about 10 minutes and we were there.  We arrived a bit out of breath but we rested at the steps of the museum.  Entry fee is $8 per adult, kids free under 5 years old.  However, we actually skipped the exhibition and went straight to the garden of sculptures where we ended up enjoying for the rest of our day.  I could see the wonderment in my kids faces as they rode the train to and from our destination.  I think we’ll have to do this again but this time, we’re going down south to San Clemente.  Hope to post another photo blog soon on that trip.
