Trains, Trains and More Trains....

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.....

I'm so sad we couldn't go! I didn't hear about it until the day before and it was too late to rearrange our Saturday. Kingston would have been in heaven! Glad you got to take Kainoa. Looks like it was a great time!

Lily is also wild about choo choo's. She would spend all her days in her choo choo jammies if mommy would allow it.
