The new obsession...

Trains. We knew Jack loved Thomas. He'd watch the movies, sleep with the couple of engines he had, and snuggle with his Thomas blanket (even though I'm completely opposed to any clothing or bedding with characters - but that's a can of worms I don't care to open just now). All bets were off once we got him the tracks and... HENRY.

Jack loves Henry. Loves. Him.

Now, every morning, the first thing we do is build a track in Jack's room. We must build a bridge or two to go over the track with Jack's wooden blocks. The train system must stay up all day and is the very last toy to be put away at night. Oh, and if we need to go anywhere, Henry usually ends up going. He's been to Walmart, Target, Kohl's, on walks around the neighborhood. Henry even made it to Pantego's National Night Out last week. He's one well traveled engine, that's for sure.

Last week Yaya and I took the kiddos to Grapevine Mills to do a little shopping and to head to Choo Choo Station - a little shop in the mall with train tables set up and a ride on train. Jack played for about 3o minutes and had a ball. He was in train heaven! This train business is his first big toy obsession, though I'm sure it won't be his last.

Isn't it so funny how little boys are so fascinated with Thomas and his friends! Our boys LOVE trains. In fact Andrew wants us to name the baby Thomas if it's a boy. What fun times!!! ENJOY!
Miss y'all!
