I've been working on the railroad...

We loved the Colorado Railroad Museum in Denver! There were trains everywhere. Jack was so excited! It was impossible to get him to stand still. Eventually I just put the camera away because I realized he wasn't going to cooperate with me.

We got to go on some of the trains and check out the inside. It was pretty cool. We saw the control panel, the firebox (where the coal goes), mail cars, passenger cars, the roundhouse and turntable, model trains, old uniforms and other paraphernalia. There was so much more to see, but naptime was calling, and I wasn't willing to let the kiddies go without naps (they get pretty mean and cranky).

If we ever get to go again, we're gonna take Eric with us!

This looks like so much fun. I bet Jack was loving it. I'm sure Eric wishes he could have gone too and it would have been easier on mom. Hopefully next time. YOu and Carrie come up with such fun things to do with your kiddos. I love it! Making a mental note and then hopefully you can teach me all your tricks down the road :)

I bet Jack loved it!! Cute pictures. That's sad Eric couldn't go...I bet he's sad he missed it. Good job takin' both kids by yourself!

Jack must have been in heaven! He has had a great summer of trains! How fun that your whole family got to go to Denver with Eric! You've been able to really have some fun vacations all together and do some cool stuff! I can't wait to see you all again!
Love,
mom

Fun times for Jack! Trains galore, how fun. Chandler was never into trains, I'm curious to see if Will will like them. Maybe I should get some Thomas dvd's.
