Finishing Up Longwood Garden Photos

I really wanted to show you the pictures of the trains
set up in the Idea Garden at Longwood.

My Grandad loved trains.

He had a set that he worked on for Christmas
each year. It was a bit different, but mostly
the same. We spent many hours under the tree
with that train.

So, I felt for the people that set up this
train set. I wondered if it was just a job?
Or if they enjoyed it. Maybe it brought back
memories from their childhood...I hope so.

And because I love Peppermint Patties...or anything with chocolate really...

Love the little buildings!

Then there is the Tower tucked away in a corner of Longwood Gardens.
The first couple of times we went only Jonathan spent time at the Tower.
It is so him.
He should have been born a few hundred years ago...maybe more.
He really loves all things from the Renaissance period.

So in his mind, this tower would be the perfect place for an archer to defend his territory. It is a place of imagination.

For me, it is great Church Bulletin Material. You know that verse that says The Name of the Lord is a Strong Tower, the Righteous shall run to it and be saved?
That will make an awesome Bulletin cover with this picture.

Getting new ideas for the bulletins takes some time.
I enjoy it though.

C. looked pretty normal at church on this particular morning...

And then from a distance, he seemed fine.

But, something happened and he came at me like this!
Oh no!

We are all fine.

We got home after a quick stop for a Frosty at Wendy's.

That was when Mikey took the whole group up to the neighbors to show them his dirt bike jump. Mommy did not go along. I have not seen the jump and I don't want to.

I hear from everyone how high he jumps and they ooohhh and ahhhh...

I don't want to know.

It stopped my heart to see him hurtling down the road at 40 mph.

More gray hairs trying to see out through the boxed color!

Well, tomorrow I will show you a special something I received in the mail.
Thank you, Miss Paula!

I saw Thomas! I will definately need to take the kids soon! Kyle must see the trains!

I love having the pass. I feel like I can go just to see special things and that I don't need to hurry to see "everything"....
