Don't you love watching your child's eyes light up with unbridled laughter as they play? Chase got his Dad's old electric train set from Grandma and Grandpa today and boy was he excited. So much enjoyment was had by our whole family as we watched the Lionel train go around and around, puffing out steam and making realistic noises. The track even sparks (is it supposed to do that or is there a short in it?) and the trailer car carried Chase's Matchbox cars.
And Alyssa? Well, she was content to watch from afar. Surprising. I thought she might grab at it.
Ahh, the treasures to be found in Grandma and Grandpa's attic.
