Elevated railway 

We’ve watched a few Thomas fan videos of home built tracks on YouTube. It’s been giving Nomi and Zoey ideas about roller coaster tracks as they call them and it’s cultivated their interest in crashes. 

A lot of tape and blocks are involved, and small pieces of furniture. It’s all good stuff, and needless to say the trains keep up a narrative as they face these new dangers. 

March is still winter, and don’t ever forget that 

Our weekend: trains! 

On Saturday we took a short train ride together, there was much excitement and the girls packed their “suitcases” for the trip. 

It was just fantastic seeing how much they enjoyed the whole experience. Next time we promised them a longer trip on the express. 

Zoey and Nomi were also interested in seeing the signals and crossing over the tracks. If only it hadn’t been so cold we could have lingered. 

Come on spring, lots of fun things to do outside. 

-2C, feels warm 

Alex is trying to convince me that the worst of winter is behind us and that spring is just around the corner. Whilst my weather app agrees with him I am dubious (but hopeful). 

February has been such a long and cold month. There aren’t even hints of spring in our neck of the woods. Just iced over sidewalks and snow. That said it was relatively warm yesterday and we headed out for a balance bike ride. Nomi and Zoey only had to wear two pairs of trousers and they decided to break out their sunnies. 

It was glorious to be out and not beaten down by the wind. It was nice enough for us to do our usual two mile circuit. 

Maybe spring is on the way…
