the trains at northpark

Yesterday Pearson and I went to check out The Trains at NorthPark.  I have lived in the Dallas area my entire life and this is the 26th year for the trains to be at NorthPark, but this was my first time to ever go.    Since Pearson loves anything moves, I had a feeling he would like it, but you just never know with a toddler!!  I was right though, he did really liked.  In fact I would say he LOVED it!! We had so much fun together looking at all the Trains then spending the afternoon walking through NorthPark.

He sat at this little window forever and watched the Thomas train go around and around.  Each time it would come around he look at me and say, "Mommy, Thomas again." He pointed to everything little thing he saw and recognized and was just bouncing up and down as each train passed. 
When we weren't watching Thomas the Train he would look at each train passing and say "look at dat choo-choo, Mommy" then "look at dis choo-choo, Mommy".  He was just mesmerized by all of the trains.  
While Pearson favorite part was watching the actual trains, I enjoyed all the scenes.  They were all so real looking and so neat to see.
