Silly Saturday

March 8th, 2009 · by sarra · No Comments

Alex went to a QA training class on Saturday, so Link and I had a fun day together. We got his hair cut, went to the bookstore and I let Link pick a new book (All Aboard the Dinotrain How awesome is that?). Then we played and had lunch and played some more and went [...]

January 1st, 2009 · by alex · 1 Comment

Avid readers of this blog will remember this post where I said I was working on a new layout. Well, I’ve made good on that promise. The idea was to make a semi-permanent layout that could handle two trains, and still go around a tree. So here’s what I did: I took a 4×8 piece [...]

We went to visit the Great Smoky Mountain Railroad last month. We drove up to Bryson City, NC on Saturday, rode the train through the Nantahala Gorge, stayed overnight and drove home Sunday morning. We kept our destination a surprise from Link. We just told him that we were going on a special trip. He [...]

Six Flags

June 22nd, 2008 · by sarra · 3 Comments

For Alex’s birthday this year, we took Link to six-flags. They have a new Thomas Town area, and he’s finally tall enough to go on some more rides. We didn’t tell him where we were going, and didn’t mention Thomas at all. I figured if he knew there was Thomas there, then we wouldn’t be [...]

Happy Birthday

Link turned 3 on May 7. When it was time to get up, Alex and I woke him by singing Happy Birthday to him. Since it was a weekday, we decided to let him have a party at school. I baked him a train cake, and brought little ice cream cups. Alex met me at [...]

Link calls this the Saturday Song, and he requests it every night when I drive him home from school.

Two Things About Alex

March 15th, 2008 · by sarra · 1 Comment

I just gave Alex those shorts. They fit him. Thankfully, they no longer fit me. —————– Alex made tuna salad for lunch today. Of course Dwight was running around begging the second the can came out of the pantry. Despite my admonitions, Alex gave him some of the juice. Shortly afterward, I noticed a trail [...]

Beany Baby

February 28th, 2008 · by sarra · 2 Comments

Link helps me make my coffee on the weekends. He presses the button to start the bean grinder, and when the french press is finished steeping, he pushes the plunger down for me. We were discussing the coffee beans the other day, and he wanted to put his hands in them. Not willing to let [...]

Playing Ball

February 23rd, 2008 · by sarra · No Comments

Last Monday (Presidents’ Day Holiday), Alex got Link a little early from school. Since the weather was mild, they spent some time outside kicking around the soccer ball. Link apparently was doing pretty well at kicking the ball to Alex. By the time I got home and got the camera out the game had morphed [...]
