Fun Saturday!

On Saturday, we went the the Jackson Street Roundhouse. During the month of December they decorate it for Christmas and have various activities for children. We visited here a few years ago and decided we needed to bring Gianna this time! This is actually a museum with old trains that the kids can play in. Spencer is 6 1/2 and still loves trains. Here he is ringing the bell...over and over and over again!

One of the really cool things to see here is the Lego train display. There is a group of guys that have a huge train track made out of nothing but Legos. The display is approximately 17 feet by 34 feet!!!! I didn't know that Lego even had electric trains. The display is pretty amazing - the photos don't do it justice. We probably spent 30 minutes just walking around and looking at all the details. I kept reminding the kids to keep there hands away from the display, but the guys were really cool. They told me not to worry - it's made of Legos and pretty easy to put back together!

After enjoying the display the kids went to listen to Mrs. Claus tell a few stories. Gianna even listened for a few minutes, but then she wanted to move! Just after this photo was taken, Mrs. Claus was reading another book and Spencer noticed she skipped a line in the story. He quickly, but politely told her. He then told her that he was such a good reader because he is a first-grader. She didn't skip anymore lines after that. Thanks, Spencer!

Here she is having a snuggle with daddy. Gianna didn't sleep at all - but was in a great mood. After 2 1/2 hours at the museum, we decided to call it a day. It was a great day.
