OGDEN -- Kindra Wixom just wanted to see the trains before she took on ice skating.
The 9-year-old South Ogden girl and her father, Joel Wixom, decided to attend several free events sponsored by the Boys & Girls Club of Weber-Davis.
The Wixoms spent their first of four hours Saturday at Union Station.
"I really want to look around and check out the trains," said Kindra, who was one of the first to arrive at Union Station. "Then I want to try ice skating."
Her father said he also wanted to squeeze in the Ogden Nature Center, "because it's really informative and educational."
The pair were participating in the fifth annual "A Day for Kids." The free activities included Ogden Nature Center, Ogden Ice Sheet, Union Station, Ogden Eccles Dinosaur Park, Sparetime Family Fun Center, Papageorge Dairy Farm and the rope course at the Boy Scouts of America office.
Mac McCullough, a board member of the Boys & Girls Club, said the event eliminates the cost of admission so families can spend some time doing things they normally would not be able to do.
Kindra is a member of the Boys & Girls Club in her neighborhood. She goes there after school because both of her parents work.
"It gives kids something to do besides sitting at home and getting bored," her father said.
Kindra was not bored at Union Station. She climbed on a rail handcart and then into a caboose.
"Oh, my gosh," Kindra said when she saw a model train chugging behind the glass.
The Wattis-Dumke Model Railroad grabbed her attention, and she ran from "California" to "Nevada" and then to "Utah," as the model trains journeyed over and through mountains behind the glass.
Then out the door went Kindra and her dad, to see the old cars.
"I really love old cars," Wixom said.
