I'm sure by now you know how much of train fan Simon is. He plays with his Thomas trains all day long and dreams about trains at night. He even has nightmares about trains sometimes. He just can't stop thinking about steam engines and deisel engines, cabooses, freight cars, passenger cars, engineers, railroad tracks. . . you get the picture.
So last Saturday we took Simon to the Arizona Railway Museum.
You would have thought he stepped right throught the gates of heaven.
We took lots and lots of pictures so I have a lot to post. Enjoy the ride with me.
Here's Simon looking out the window of a passenger car at all the other train cars and such in the yard.
Unfortunately, Ryan didn't enjoy himself as much as Simon. Train museums just aren't made for babies. He kept falling down and bumping into things.
He did enjoy the dining car. Maybe he was just hungry. Too bad there was no food on the train.
Look at this monster! If you know the Thomas trains, this one would be Harvey. He helps the trains that get off the tracks by using his crane to pick them up and put them back on.
My boys. :)
