Two-Two

Brody loves trains - has always loved them - from Thomas to Geo-Trax, from old Steamies' to Amtrak, Brody LOVES trains.  So when Bubba came along, we knew were set for another train-lovin boy.  And boy has he not dissapointed!!

He will play with Geo-Trax and Thomas for hours - loves for his older brother to set tracks up.  Brody gets a little frustrated with him, as his clumsy, almost-2-year-old baby brother tends to knock a lot down, but secretly, I know he loves making them for him.

On a whim last Sunday, we decided to take a trip to a local park where they have this little depot and train running on the weekends.  Let's see what the almost-2-year-old thinks of this:

nervous anticipation....






 He loved most of it - although I couldn't catch a smile from him.......

The engine made fake "puffing" noises that scared the bejeezes out of him - hence the expression on his face and the clutching to mamma in this picture.

Afterwards, we enjoyed a picnic in the park where he followed his big brother around......
 And was able to wave at the train a few more times......


So, he loved it (no doubt that he would) and this family had a perfect spot to celebrate his upcoming birthday!!!

I jumped on Etsy that night and found this adorable invitation thanks to Dimpleprints.


And if I can just do a "plug" for this amazing company - I ordered the "print" on Sunday night and by Tuesday morning, I had my copy emailed to me - she worked with me on the picture (and was so gracious) and by Wednesday night, I had them in hand!  I just printed off 20 at Sam's for less than $5.00.

I loved the fact that I didn't have to go search for paper to make my own, take an hour to figure out the print (I never could have made them this cute anyway).  And I didn't have time to order them online.  It worked beautifully ~ and she has adorable banners, cupcake toppers, and gift tags to match.  Love it!

(BTW- I was not asked to post for Dimpleprints - I just loved the process and wanted to share how great of an experience it was!)

We took Alex to see Thomas (drove to CO for the weekend..whirlwind trip) when he was two and he had that SAME expression on his face the whole time!

Gotta love two year olds!
