We’re still going with the train obsession over here. There is no sign that it is leaving anytime soon, so we’re just going with it. We’ve taken Jansen to the train museum in Galveston a couple times and he LOVES it. The last time we went was in January when we were in Galveston with Molly and Lauren and their families. Apparently that is too long for little J.
Most of last week, when Jansen woke up in the morning he would yell, “Daddy! Daddy! It’s not dark outside! We go to tain museum!” Seriously. It’s hilarious. He’s been in this phase of telling me he doesn’t need to nap because it’s not dark outside, then he buy cheap cialis online started saying it in the mornings when he woke up. But this train museum thing is heart breaking.
I go in there and tell him that it is a school day or a work day or whatever. And he gets sad. I hate when he’s sad.
So Stephen and I decided that on Saturday we really needed to take him. My grandpa told me about another train museum in Texas City so we thought we’d give it a shot. We decided not to tell him where we were going because we didn’t want him to freak out when we weren’t at THE train museum.
We walked in and he heard the lady at the counter say that the train portion of the museum was upstairs. His eyes lit up and he started pointing at the stairs and saying, “I go there!”
It was a blast. It’s basically a huge room where all these men set up their model trains. Several of them are there to chat or show off other trains, and some are unmanned.
I do wish they had more steps or stools, because it gets really old to hold a toddler the whole time. I’m a wimp and he’s not light. He could have stayed there for hours, and we would have stayed there longer if it weren’t for the fact that I had a raging migraine and we were starving.
All the scenes are pretty elaborate. Most of them have little things moving, like fishing poles or airplanes or cows. I could see how this would be tons of fun for older kids too. So much accuracy too. I mean, this one scene had a dinosaur eating Superman.
Good stuff, really. I’m sure this will be the first of many trips to the “Texas Tain Museum.”
