These pictures are from our second day in Ohio when my dad (Papa Bill) and SueAnne took us to visit Entertrainment (no, I didn't misspell it), the largest model train display and museum in the country. I know, I know... model trains. You can almost see the nerdiness through the computer screen. But, despite my desire to grab the nearest pocket protector and suspenders, it was actually a pretty interesting exhibit. I've already detailed Ben's train adoration, so this was just perfect for him. The display was pretty amazing, and the museum included a large play area - largely dedicated to Thomas - for the kids. Grandma, Seth, Jesse, Zeke and Kayli also joined us, and I think everyone really had a great time.
This is a pretty sad picture, but it's the only one I took of the trains themselves. The display was enormous, so getting it all in would have been impossible. But, I think you can see how detailed it all was.
Shawn pointing out Thomas "puffing down the track" for Ben. Also, notice Jesse in the background of the picture.
What is he doing?
Talk about a NERD!
What a minute! That's the first time in my life I've been able to call him that.... MUUWAHAHAHAHAAA.
Ok, I'm done laughing. Sorry about that. Just a little sibling issue there.
Thus the note taking. Really, I'm quite proud of him . . . but he's still a nerd. :-)

And now, for your viewing pleasure, a video of my nephew Zeke displaying all his funky moves. This kid can swagga!
This along with a lunch trip to Chik-fil-A made for a very good day. The kids had a blast, and the adults enjoyed it too.
