I'm sure I've mentioned before that Mark is a little obsessed with trains. He's passed this gene onto Mady.
In my inbox last week I got an invite to one of my best friend's parent's house for an afternoon of the "Running of the Trains." Her dad is one of the engineers (or would they be called conductors?) that appeared at the SuperTrain show we went to in the spring.
In their backyard they have a full garden train set up. HOW COOL IS THAT??
They even have a footbridge that the train goes under. Katie thought that was the best thing ever and with her new ability to walk spent much of the time figuring out how to walk up it, but was confused by the incline.
|I would like to draw everyone's attention to Kate's ponytail. The first time I have ever gotten one in that she didn't rip out 2 minutes later. Yeah!!|
My favourite part (and some how I didn't even think to take a picture of it) is that the train goes right across their deck. They removed some of the floor boards and laid down track. How fun is that??
We came home and I could see the wheels turning in Mark's head as he tried to figure out how much grass (that he hates mowing) could be removed to make such a train set up in our back yard. Hehe!
Thanks Stan and Charlotte for the fun afternoon!
