westward ho!


Getting out to the Domes for our annual train show exhibit is always fun - but when it is sunny and the sky is blue it is just perfect.


We went early, as always, to avoid crowds, and had the full bright morning sunshine along with the trains, scenery, and so many colorful flowers.


The theme this year was "Westward HO!" Not as amazing as the LEGO extravaganza of last year for the boys (how do you follow up that one??), but still very interesting scenery.


Of course, I ended up with more kid pix than train photos - they were so silly! We stayed in the floral dome watching the trains for a long while, and then wandered the arid and tropical domes too, to look at flowers, trees, birds, fish...and to breathe.


The best part of the whole thing, though? Watching these two (loving being together, as always) and soaking up some rays!


Hope you had a nice weekend!

Pampered Mom - It runs through March! It is nice because it is such a big space with so much to look at. Makes it worth the drive.

Stephanie - Especially at this time of year. Eyes go into shock. ;)

All those lovely colors and lush greenery make me long for Spring and we still have a ways to go yet!

Looks like the boys had fun :0)
