Trains!

Our grandson, Mason, is crazy about trains!

So, since his birthday is in a couple of days.  And since I found this cool train set and table on Craigslist.  I just couldn’t help myself!  Happy Early birthday Mason.  Grandpa and Grandma love you so much!

Mason and Andie came home last night and he played with it for several hours straight.  He had to sleep with some of the trains and then this morning he went right back to it.

Mason loves trains so much I’ve had a Pullen Park trip planned for quite some time.  Today was the day!

Pullen Park is the very first public park in all of North Carolina!  It’s nestled right next to the NCSU campus not far from downtown Raleigh.

Pullen was closed in 2009 for extensive renovations but re-opened in November 2011.

First order of business was to ride the “real train” as Mason put it.

Jonathan met us there and we all had a blast!  (Notice the wooden train in Mason’s hands.  He is never far from one.  Ron says it’s his security blanket of sorts.)

Next up were the boats!

He loved the boats dare I say it, maybe even more than the train.

Then we moseyed on over to the carousel.

This Dentzel carousel is a wonder.  So Beautiful!

A little time on the playground and then one more ride on the boat rounded out the day.
