Train lover

Tyler has loved trains for many years now, being only 4, it's amazing how many of his years on this earth have been spent on the floor, face to face with his trains, lost in a pretend world. Lately I've been trying to take more pictures because I know it won't always be like this. Someday we'll pack all the tracks and "enjunes" away, place the box in the attic and move onto more "exciting" things. But for today it's Thomas and his friends....each morning he begins anew with his tracks....a clean canvas on which to build his railroad.
Thomas was in town a last week so each day we would drive past the railroad near our home, just to catch a glimpse. One day we ventured out with my sister and her children, into the maddening crowds of overly stimulated toddlers, but it was worth it! Memories take work, but they are always...always worth the effort. Tyler, I love to watch you play with your special are precious!

Luke doesn't like the loud whistle, but he still loves to watch Thomas in real life!

"A child reminds us that playtime
is an essential part of our daily routine."
