More choo choos

The boys are still a bit obsessed with trains, so of course we are taking advantage of their fascination and taking them to see many trains. On March 5th we took the boys to the model train show at the Union station.

We saw trains of all scales including Thomas the train engine who the boys still love. I think we heard the boys say ‘choo choo’ a few thousand times.

There were regular model trains and an entire room dedicated to a lego train set.

Everyone tried on a conductor’s hat.

The hats were just a little big and there was no way they would keep them on. Maybe next year we’ll get them hats to wear. There was also a larger train outside that you could ride on and full sized train cars you could climb and look through, but it was getting cold and too close to nap time.

We will definitely be back next year only we’ll arrive earlier and not go on a Saturday. It was packed and very hard to navigate with the strollers. I am really enjoying the train phase and hope it lasts for a while. Yesterday we rode front runner round trip for about an hour. The boys had a blast. With any luck next year the boys will be tall enough to see most of the displays on their own as well.

  1. You should take them to the train museum that is in stansbury/tooele. My friend's little boys love it!
