Swing set

Last Saturday my dad came over to put together the swing set for the kids. Saved Mark some time and me some sanity since Mark wasn't going to be able to do it until the end of June. Mattingly of course helped put it together and find the lost nut.They took a little break and I surprised Mattingly taking him to Essex Steam Train to see Thomas the Train. Crummy day but still fun. We rode the train to and from the car and then we took an adventure on Thomas finding an 87 carat diamond. They had a magic show, music show, face painting, rides, tattoos, train tables, balloon man, meet Sir Topam Hatt, food and of course trinkets. All was included except the food and toys. Mattingly was exceptionally well behaved! He held grandma's hand without complaining, even got his face painted and told the man what balloon he wanted. Myla was good too. I forgot the stroller so I held her a little bit then my dad did and she fell asleep on him. We'll see if Mattingly is brave enough to do the Polar Express this year! I really want to do that. We arrived back home just in time before dark to finish up the swing set and for Mattingly to try it out. It's great to have. Although this week was a little rainy we did use it twice. Thanks Papa!!!!

Man, I love Mattingly's smile! What a guy, I wish we were closer. Looks like a fun day of activity despite the clouds.
