Here's our big boy, riding in his Trike-A-Thon. Thank you SO much for those that gave
The kids had to ride along the course, making sure to follow the rules of the road
Even Clifford showed up to give some moral support
Here's Jared racing around an open bend
Jared giving his friend Clifford a great big Jared-hug
Uh oh, traffic jam forming
Looks like thr traffic is thinning out
Jared racing to finish his laps
All the other kids bailed out early (hey, they are 5 and under), but our little boy wanted to make sure he finished
And finish he did, jood job son!
As a reward, we got him his very first Lego set, which (not surprisingly) he just loves. Oh, if he only knew what Daddy had in the basement
What's this? Why it's our littlest boy's crib. time to take the next step Devin
A big boy bed!
Devin's first bed!
Yay, I'm a big boy now! *bounce* *bounce* *bounce*
Plop! I love it Daddy
I can't wait to sleep in it. As you may recall, Devin got out of his crib WAY sooner than Jared did, so we really didn't have a choice
Big brother enjoying some bounces too. What is it with kids and bouncing on everything?
Our littlest enjoying his first night in his brand new bed
Now we switch gears and headed out the Greenfield Village to enjoy a Day out with Thomas!
First we get to enjoy a yummy engineer's breakfast at the Taste of History cafe
It's a very nice place they have at the village, with very nice decor and really good food
As part of the day, they had some pickers singing us some kiddie hobo music
And here we are, ready to board. This is Devin's first time riding Thomas
Of course Jared is a veteran of many a Thomas ride. He's still super excited though
Devin's first ride on Thomas!
Off we go, racing round the bends!
A later shot of Thomas waiting at the station for his next load of passengers
And of course, the carousel, with Jared on his favorite carousel animal
Devin sure enjoys it also
You bet I do Daddy!
We got to watch some period actors shearing a sheep using authentic 1800's tools
Thomas continued to circle the village while we went exploring around the buildings
Alas no, Thomas doesn't cross the covered bridge (wow I love this shot)
That bridge is just for wagons and feet (I love this shot too)
Jared, Devin, Thomas and Horses!
As always, in the pond under the bridge were tons of turtles, goldfish and frogs
Jared sneaking in another shot in front of his favorite Train
Devin ready to begin his driving lessons
Ok son, let's back out. Time to go home after a really fun day with Thomas!
