Kids say their parents are "the coolest ever"

Jon and Helen Cluett went on vacation this month to a remote part of Scotland. With their four children, ages 6, 8, 10 and 12, they paddled a canoe across a lake to stay in a tiny cottage. But during the night the lake water rose and washed away their canoe. The only way back was a long walk through a swamp. And that's when it happened --a miserable trip they'd never forget turned into a vacation they'd always remember.

Luckily, Jon and Helen had a cell signal, so they called for help. It turned out there were some railroad tracks about a quarter mile away and the next train scheduled to pass was the one used in the Harry Potter movies. In the movies, it's called the Hogwarts Express. In real life it's called The Jacobite, and does sight-seeing tours. Police contacted the conductor and had the train make an extra stop to pick up the family.
