To continue with the train theme we all headed down to ride the train this morning with Santa. There is a great old rail station in Calera, Alabama where they run the old trains on seasonal trips, so kids can ride. This is the same trip we took in October to the pumpkin patch, only we didn't get off the train this time.
Walker was very excited all morning and Eli took a nice nap to prepare. Walker wanted to walk up and down the aisles to meet and talk to everyone, but that wasn't encouraged, so there was a moment of frustration there, but he was able to deal with it. Eli was just happy with his pacifier. I kept trying to take it away so it wouldn't be in all the pictures, but he would just find something else (far less clean) to chew on.
Santa walked up and down the train talking to all the children and Mrs. Claus passed out presents. It was pretty neat, but the train part was still more impressive to our boys. Eli wanted to chew on his present and Walker, the sweet big brother, took his over to Eli said "share" and handed his bear to Eli, also.
Whenever I go out with Eli other ladies shopping will comment on what a flirt he his, and they are right. If you give this little guy a look he will turn on the charm. Well, he found a little girl sitting behind us, with just one tooth as well, and made a love connection. They talked, squealed, and reached out for each other. I think I know what Eli asked Santa for. :)
The boys did really well and a fun time was had by all. What is not for a kid to love, trains, Santa, toys, and family all around. We were even able to do a Chick-fil-a lunch and play time after. A wonderful December Saturday.
