DeKalb recap...(A month late!)

I wish I was a bit more on the ball when it came to recapping our fun adventures!  But late is better than never, right?

As most of you know, C & I headed out to see Sister and her little girl a few weeks ago.  Her hubby accepted a job closer in our state (YAY!) which means she'll be closer to us-- by a LOT.  We are SUPER excited to be able to spend more time with them. But they still haven't officially moved and she is single-parenting it right now so we thought we'd swing out to give her some company on a weekend.

We lucked out with beautiful weather and were able to play outside most of the time.  Although it was definitely chilly, that seemed pretty appropriate for mid- October.

The highlight of the weekend was going for a ride on a TRAIN.  Like most 2 year old boys, C is currently obsessed with trains and having the chance to be near them, let alone ride on one, is pretty much the best thing ever.  Needless to say, he was pumped.  

We arrived right as the train was heading out-- he was sad we missed it and very worried that he wouldn't have a turn. Poor guy. 
Proud little man-- next to railroads that make him so happy! 
ALl smiles as they board the train!  Notice the grip C has on his ticket-- he was so excited to give it to the "gin-eer".
My adorable date!
Pretty sure there's nothing cuter than this picture, right?
N didn't want to smile-- she was too busy with the popcorn!
Picking out the pumpkins-- C marched right over, grabbed one, and got back on the train. He did NOT want to miss one second of being on that train.  

Waiting patiently while N picked out her pumpkin.  

Posing for a picture by the engine-- Who can say ham?  :) 

Of course the weekend flew by too quickly and we were heading for home before we knew it.  Thankfully, C slept in the car so his mother could recharge her batteries a bit (he was tired after waking up around 6:00 both mornings.  Thank you son.) and we both were good as new when we returned to Spahnville later that night.  C talked about that train ride for the next week-- I think it made a mighty impression on him.  I wonder what he'd say if we told him that same park offers a Polar Express ride in December?  Shhhhhh..... don't let the cat out of the bag just yet.
