Choo Choo!

 For Christmas Lucas got this super cute train set which included a train track and 4 cars (Lizzie destroyed the engine almost immediately). He pretty much ignored this fabulous toy until recently when he became OBSESSED with all things train. The first words out of his mouth in the morning are "choo choo!!" and he says them nonstop all day long. Sometimes I make the mistake of singing the Thomas theme song at the wrong time because when he hears it he points to the tv and says "choo choo" willing it to magically turn on and play Thomas. I find myself wondering if it is normal for kids to have an obsession at this age. It has to be. Or it is just his normal :)

Lucas is lucky to have chosen an obsession that apparently is common in this area of the country. Model train construction/maintenace seems to be a pretty popular hobby because there are several "seasonal displays", museums with train areas, and childrens play centers devoted to trains. Ross and I even saw a model in the basement of an open house. Below are some pictures of Lucas at Entertrainment Junction - one such childrens play center/model train display that we took him to recently.

Notice the gigantic sock on Lucas's left foot? Yeah, he might have a broken leg. I'll update after his orthopedic appointment tomorrow.
