Summer’s here: Watkins Park train – here we come!

As you’ve probably already figured out, trains are a very important part of Jalen’s life.  Joshua likes them too – he likes taking them off the tracks when they’re running.  🙂  Here’s our first train ride of the summer.

The boys in action

My iPhone is truly near and dear to my heart.  Paul and Chris can talk about ‘Droid all they want – I don’t think it can get much easier than this.  🙂  Here are are some clips of the boys in action.  Sorry about the abrupt endings – I forgot to ‘fade to black’…

Jalen’s been into construction and trains since he was able to walk (about a year).  Here are a few of his creations (click the ‘Read More’ link at the end of this paragraph).  Most of these he very proudly built by himself, except the first train track you see with a Lego ‘tunnel’ (Grampa helped build the track; Jalen built the tunnel himself), and the ones with Vaughn in the picture – they built those together.

We took a family trip to Arundel Mills mall last August shortly before Johann went back to Trinidad and we came across this interesting, well – I don’t even know what to call it.  Mr. Adventerous Johann of course decided he wanted to give it a try.  Check it out for yourself.  Melissa and Verleyne provide commentary in the background.

Hanging at the mall with the boys

Took the boys to the mall on a random Thursday evening.  Train ride, indoor playground, pizza – they had a blast. Click on the picture to see the Zap.
