This Weekend: Trains, Birthday, Thomas and First Goal

It was a crazy weekend, but a fantastic weekend. Saturday started out with National Train Day, so I took the Boy and we saw all kinds of neat stuff. We even got to go in the cockpit of an Amtrak train.Then we came home and started preperation for the Girl's second birthday party. The weather ended being nice and we had a great time. Not sure which present was the biggest hit, the mini-dirt devil vacuum, Elmo Live!, or my wife and 'her' Bitty Baby (which is really for the Girl I think?!). So she is two now and we have removed the high chair (which is awesome in the kitchen) and she hardly takes part in strollers or shopping carts anymore.
Sunday then up early and on our way to see Thomas the Train. Again the weather held out for us and we had a great time, probably the most fun train ride we have had since we were all happy and enjoying it very much. For those of you that have kids and they know of Thomas this is a must as it is a life size Thomas that takes you for a ride. Yes we had our meltdowns in the toy tent and before lunch (expected from any 5 and 2 year old combination) but it was still a fantastic day.

Finally, the Boy who has started his first hockey league this year scored his first ever goal Monday night (I know not technically the weekend but close enough). It was awesome and something I think we will all remember for a very long time. The excitement and joy he had was indescribable. He now has the puck in his shadow box with his Jiri Fischer signed stick and Niklas Kronwall signed name badge.
