Train Update 2008

October 7th, 2008 · by alex · 2 Comments

If you’re following this blog, you may remember a post about two years ago on the resurrection of my father’s old trains. Last year we bought some new track and made things work a bit more smoothly. This year I got the bug to do a little more. I was inspired by our trip on [...]

New Format

April 25th, 2008 · by alex · No Comments

As you may have noticed, we updated the site recently. I upgraded WordPress to 2.5 (we were on 2.0 for a long time). There have been a lot of updates to WordPress, many of which were security related, so I figured it was about time I did that. While I did that, I figured it [...]

Playing in the rain

August 28th, 2007 · by sarra · 2 Comments

Sunday afternoon we went for ice cream, and then to the store. When we came out of the store it was pouring. When we got home, Link decided he wanted to play in the rain. He ran in and out of the garage, splashing in the puddles in the drive way. He had a fantastic [...]

More House Stuff

August 7th, 2007 · by sarra · 1 Comment

We finally got around to putting up the geeky baby flash cards in the play room. I think I bought these close to a year ago. Also, with all the toys in the garage, I decided it was time to finally clean up in there. (Alas, no before pictures, but believe me: It was a [...]

Garden, Grow

July 3rd, 2007 · by sarra · No Comments

My garden is doing remarkably well. Here are some pictures from a couple weeks ago. (I’ve been lax with my updates.) Since these were taken, the watermelon vine has grown at least another foot, and there are some little melons developing. If I had known how well this would go, I would have made a [...]

Big Boy Bed

June 27th, 2007 · by sarra · 4 Comments

We converted Link’s crib to a big boy bed on Friday. Link took to it like a champ, and seems to be happy to be able to get in and out himself. (He is into the “Link do it” phase, big time.) There’s still a gate on the door, so he’s confined to his room. [...]

House stuff

May 26th, 2007 · by sarra · 3 Comments

We’ve been planning to put a patio of some sort below the deck in the back for a while now. When we bought the house, I assumed that we’d get a concrete pad under the deck, just like all the other houses. By the time that I realized that they weren’t putting it back there, [...]

It Really Was a Merry Christmas

December 25th, 2006 · by sarra · 2 Comments

Link woke this morning around 7:30 and we headed downstairs to deal with the onslaught of gifts. First on the agenda was the stockings. The custom is for the eldest to open a gift, then on down the line to the youngest. Link wasn’t so hot on that idea, but we were able to keep [...]

The Silver Streak Rides Again!

December 23rd, 2006 · by alex · 2 Comments

A couple of years ago, my parents cleaned out some old junk and brought us some of my old toys and the remnants of an HO train set. The set is over 50 years old, bought by my dad when he was a teenager. I tried to resurrect it last year and bought a new [...]
