Not the most clever of titles, but it definitely sums up our day!
We spent Saturday morning downtown at the Train Show. And what a train show it was!!!
When we walked in, we were overwhelmed by all the moving parts...fabulous models, VERY enthusiastic train fans, Thomas the Tank engine was everywhere. (thank goodness a birthday is coming up....a great excuse to shop). Sooo many model trains -- most made noise, puffed smoke and even smelled like a train station (please don't ask me to describe it...just take Timi's word for it). There was even a model roller coaster that hit our soft spot. Our favorite find (ok, my favorite find) was a dvd of real trains on the tracks for only $6. maybe it's cooler in person...as I descibe it, it sounds a bit bland
Timi and Kainoa were able to ride in a neat train that had a real conductor and bell!
Nothing like a kid in a candy store.....
