Holiday Tradition.

I am always amazed to see how different these two boys are - who spend every moment together, enjoy many of the same toys, and are close in age. A is a big fan of model trains. Even when he was 3 years old he had already memorized all of the different types of engines, passenger cars, freight cars, all of the different motors and rail types. He reads model railroad magazines and books. He visits train shows whenever he can. He LOVES them. Every winter we visit the holiday model train show put on by the botanical garden. It is a small exhibit, but A can watch for an hour without even blinking.

G, on the other hand, enjoys them...but, ya know, no biggie. He tolerates train shows and enjoys the first 1.2 minutes, but after that he is ready to GO!!!! Or, perhaps, see how riled up he can get his brother. Because, HEY, don't they have SUGAR COOKIES in the lobby? ;)

This year the tradition continues...

I don't do a lot of blog hopping. I have your blog on my favorite list on my private blog. When I do get to come for a visit, I always love what I see. I love your pictures and the way you capture the feeling so well. Today I've visited twice. This particlar post makes me laugh. My 7 year old was interested in trains at about 18 mo nths. He knew all about trains and we went to every train park we could. He wold build amazingly complicated tracks when he was about 2 1/2. My 3 year old is pretty much disinterested in trains. Much like the last picture in this post!

Thanks for sharing your story with us. I love to see what you are up to. I appreciate so much, your wonderful pictures!

My almost 5yo is the same way when it comes to trains. I completely forgot about going to that exhibit this year, but last year I was amazed at how much time he spent watching them. I didn't think my 2yo daughter would be as interested in them - she wasn't last year - but she seems to be just as fascinated this year.

Loved the photos!
