Day At The Train Park

My son loves trains, totally and completely. So we decided to take him to the train park on our first day off from work. The day was just perfect, and we had a wonderful time! This is the first vacation we have had off together in two years.

Being silly.

Riding the train is serious business.

We have never been to the park at night, just during the day. I am sure it is so pretty at night, as they have lights strung all over the park. We are planning on going back after Christmas when it is not so busy.

I still can't believe that Christmas is two days away! We finished up our shopping today, which means I am a very busy little elf, as I make all the gifts for the adults of my family. We are going to take family pictures tomorrow, though I still have no idea where. I guess I will figure it out in the morning.

I will be up wrapping presents tonight, and tomorrow will be finishing up last minute gift making projects. I hope to be all finished by tomorrow afternoon, so we can relax for the rest of the few days I have off. 

Even though we are busy, I still have time to get our hour of read aloud time in every day! Of course it has been all Christmas books. Here are a few books we have read in the past few days:

Plus I finished reading A Christmas Carol the other night, and have been listening to Little Women in the car to and from work. I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend! Happy Reading!


  1. Oh, goodness, a train park sounds like fun! My hubby is a railroader, so no telling how much he'd enjoy it. ;o) I love that edition of The Night Before Christmas. So pretty! Merry Christmas!

  2. Danzel, I have no idea why he is so obssesed with trains, but he is! Oh and he would love talking to your hubby! He loves to tell me where everything is on the train and what it does. Every book we read, he has to stop me from turning the page to tell me he wants to ride that particular train. He is so funny :) Hope you and your family Have a wonderful Christmas!
