Trains

Our boy loves trains. Seriously. loves. them. In the car, just running errands, he asks to drive over more train tracks (who doesn't love a nice big bump when driving?!). And he is genuinely super excited to just go over the tracks. It's the simple things, really.

Santa brought him a train table for Christmas. It has been the most exciting gift he's ever received. Thomas the Train and all of his friends, regular strength trains, cars, dinosaurs, airplanes---pretty much everything has had a turn on that table. He's spent hours creating and re-creating different scenarios. And everyone that walks in the door is asked (read:harassed) to "Come play train table??!!". Such a sweet obsession.


This past weekend, John thought it would be a fun family outing to go find some train tracks and let Harvey get out and explore. If nothing else, it would be good for us to all get out together and go for a ride (we hadn't all been out together since the beginning of December). We were able to do better than just an empty old boring track----we found a train pulling in for a stop!


Don't worry, we had the camera. :) I'm trying to make up for lost time here.

This was pretty much the highlight of his whole life to date. Now the plain old empty tracks aren't nearly as exciting. Still exciting, but he's pretty determined to find another "big train". We've set the bar pretty high I'm afraid.
