Hi Everyone!! It’s time to jump back in time again to last June… When I was 26 months old and Scooters was only eight days old! Daddy was still home on paternity leave and Mommy was feeling pretty mobile after her C-section, so we went on our first outing as an official family of four!!
And you know where we went?
The TRAIN STATION!!!
Note: Our enthusiasm looks suspiciously like irritation and shock in the above photo. But truly, we were enthused.
We waited for a long time, but no trains came–until the very end!!
We were actually loading up the car to go home when Mommy heard the train whistle and we unloaded and booked it to the platform as fast as we could!
“Wook, Daddy! Wook, Mommy! A TRAIN!!!”
Then we followed an engine down the tracks a ways.
He was parked and resting.
Note: About this time Mommy realized she’d over-estimated her ability to be mobile and pain free. She was missing her Percocet.
What a beauty.
“Isn’t she beautiful, Scooters?”
Awww, would you look at that?
So sweet and peaceful.
Such a cute curve to his toes.
In the same position they were before he fell asleep.
What a cutie!!
“Hey Ma! I’ve got a question for you… What are the chances of you and Daddy grabbing that there locomotive and hefting him into the back of our car to keep forever?”
[I’m afraid the chances of that are mighty slim, Son].
“That’s what I was afraid of.”
