Christmas is nearly over at our house. Our family has been together for the past five days and have we had the most wonderful time!! We opened our presents on Saturday. Of course, this was the highlight of the celebration for our grandsons. We had time this year to add lots of extras. Our first activity was to go to a local library that had a working model train display. The boys really loved this. The twins love trains, all trains!! There were small working areas where they could push buttons and load train cars with barrels or wood. Lots of fun for them.
As we left the library we dropped by the Union Pacific Railroad shop. This train really impressed the boys!! This is one of the largest electric engines built.
Later that evening, we took a trip to Garvin Gardens, a magical winter wonderland with over 1.8 million lights. The weather was perfect, in the 50's. The boys were amazed!!
All the grandsons peeking out of a gingerbread house.
The main attraction to the boys...THE TRAIN!! They could actually walk through the train and ring the bell!!
Look at the excitement on their faces!!
It is the most beautiful display of lights I have ever seen!! We had the most wonderful time!!
