Gardenland Express on Thanksgiving
Before lunch, I decided to take Nathan to the Gardenland Express at the Missouri Botanical Gardens since it was open at 9am on Thanksgiving. Nathan looks forward to this every year, because he loves electric trains!
We even got a really good family portrait! This was unusual because both kids are smiling at once! How did I get so lucky? Now, if only I can be this lucky when we do our Christmas cards photo next week.
They had an amtrak train
A train with little plants in the cars
The 'dollhouse' train, as Autumn called it
A train with big presents on its back
BroBro and Sissy looking at the trains together. Awh!
The kids got a book with pictures in it, and they had to find that item on the track. They both did a really good job finding everything.
Just some of the details
Overall, a really good time! Happy Thanksgiving!
