Loved that last photo of Ryder all sacked out in his little footie pj's.

When my kids were little we took them to see Thomas the Tank Engine at Tweetsie Railroad. It was mostly for DS who was four at the time, but our DD was 10 months old and she loved everything as much as he did. We had that Thomas stuff for about 7-8 years. I was so sad when they finally outgrew it.

Can I just say that your kids are so photogenic. That so happy in all their pictures. Especially Madison. She looks so happy I think she is going to burst and that's an adorable picture of her with Ryder.

Pixie dust on the race cars! Love it!

You sat in a rocking chair feeding Ryder and then ran when he needed a diaper change...
Barry you filled him up and then bolted when he was ready to give back.

Looks like Ryder enjoyed his first, train and carousel ride.

Madison will win an acting award someday that expression is fabulous.

Evan with his evil grin on the speedway-be afraid be very afraid.

I will give you points for taking Ryder and letting Bambi have all the nono rides this time.

Just because he did it once doesn't mean he did it again.

Of course not- He called that "settled the debt"

Maybe we need to go back to the last TR and tally up how much he owes you.....






Then double it.

He thinks the debt was settled after one ride. Not even close.

Probably, but with every heartbeat, he'd lose just a little more blood. Then his family would sue, I guess.

I took Evan to a model rail road show a few years back. He was too short to see much, so I had him up on my shoulders most of the day. He was having a ball, point me this way and that wanting to see every inch of every train.

A good start… we’ll se how you do when the real payment comes due latter on.

Pretty much.
And if you’re mighty lucky…
you don’t grow out of it.

Sheesh buddy, take a hint.

Here comes that test of true debt settlement I was talking about…

Suspected as much.
You still owe her… big time

That one will go a little bit toward that debt settlement.

Maybe if they were to add just a little bit more…
The cars would float above that center rail.



Then I’d be considerably more willing to ride that one.
