Enchanted Railroad

On Friday I took Ethan to the Morton Arboretum. This is one of our favorite places in the Summer but we don't visit in the Winter since it's too cold to be outside. However, they had a really cool train display called, The Enchanted Railroad that we just had to check out.

The train display was four-sided and each side represented a season at the Arboretum. It was a beautiful display and Ethan was completely enthralled. They also had buttons on each side that kids could push and something would happen in the display. 

Ethan had such a great time. I think we were there for about 90 minutes and he just sat and watched all the trains going around and around and was excited each time one came his way. He loved being so close to the trains since the display was so close to the ground. One of the men running the trains even commented how impressed he was with Ethan's train enthusiam and the respect he showed to the trains because he never reached for any of them. Let's just say the guys working there were putting the trains back on the tracks every few minutes or so because of little hands! It was a great time and Ethan loved it!
