george, meet george...

G has taken an interest in trains. When we are out running errands, I try to plan them around a stop at the bookstore so that he can get some playtime at the Thomas table. We had picked up a few generic Target brand trains to keep in the diaper bag for the days that the official Thomas trains are missing from the play area but, he already knows the difference.  It's the faces.  He likes holding up the trains and having conversations with their round plastic faces *dies from cuteness*

One day, I'm sure he will amass quite the collection of Thomas trains. I'm not too keen on making that huge investment right now when our little guy is still very interested in exploring everything with his mouth.  $20 trains with teeth marks?  No thanks. But Mr. Boom managed to find a couple of deals on eBay and, last night THE 'train' arrived. 

Our George was introduced to George the Steamroller...
He played with the packaging for awhile, taking it in and out, over and over... 
  
Oh the joy!
Hmm, wonder how this works? 
Good job Daddy! This gift was a big hit.

Aw, that's so sweet! He looks so thrilled with his new loot! Griffin just discovered the train table at Barnes and Noble this past weekend. We will definitely be going back there again soon.

From 1 train loving family to another...please, please, PLEASE let me know if you'd like anything from our collection. It's immense. It's gotten *slightly* out of control. I would so happy to gift little man with some tracks and engines.

Did I say PLEASE?!?

awww, very cute. Looks like George is a hit! As you know A is a thomas lover. We have tons of trains but not George yet. FYI the 50% off coupons you can print out for AC Moore work on the Thomas items! (just as long as they aren't already on sale) I make it a rule to never pay full price for anything Thomas :)
