more trains

Saturday we visited the Chicago Botanic Garden to check out the winter train exhibit.
Trains were running throughout mini scenes of Chicago. All the structures and buildings were built from plants, braches, twigs, moss - everything from nature. It was spectacular!

Of course my two little engineers thoroughly enjoyed being up close & personal with the many trains, trams, and trolleys that wound their way throughout the different tracks.

And it's nice to look back on a fun day like that when we are faced with today: feeling sick and staying put on the couch.

As my son said to me this morning, "maybe we should kiss and snuggle all day today". I think that's a good idea.

Feel better soon! The train show looks amazing. They do the same thing at the NY Botanical Garden, but we've never gone. Looks like we'll have to add it to the festivities for next Christmas!

Meg, I think one of the reasons I enjoy your blog so much is that reading your posts brings back such great memories of when my son was little ~ he loved anything to do with trains as well.
Hope you are all feeling better ~

Oh Meg,
Your boys are so wonderful...I am going to cry. Yes, I am.
Ok. I think that is the sweetest thing I have heard!!!
Today I am faced with knowing that my son, Doug, is exploring the rent market to move out on his own. OH, I am going to cry again.
I hope that you all feel beeter soon!
xoxo to all of you

The train exhibit looks like the kind of place where it would be fun to spend an hour or ten. :)

I hope you all feeling better soon, kisses and snuggles are perfect remedies.
