Thomas the Train


February 19, 2016

Today was a PD day at Samuel's school. We decided it would be a good day to visit the Thomas  Friends -Explore the Rails exhibit at the Children's Museum, Canadian Museum of History. Our boys love trains!

First we played together at Grandpa and Barbara's house. Samuel checked out the museum exhibit online.




Trains greeted us at the Children's Museum. The boys ran in. First they checked out the boats and an Egyptian exhibit.







Soon they discovered Thomas. They were very busy for about an hour and a half. See them in action:

Then we were ready for a beavertail in the cafeteria.



Followed by a visit to the Haida exhibit in the Great Hall.




And fun at the water fountains before heading down the escalator to the van.



Back to 9 Lambert for a story, fun making brownies, then supper and playtime with Papa before heading home.

A Restful Day


February 4, 2016

Today Samuel wasn't feeling well so he spent a restful morning watching Grant play Red Ace Squadron and NHL Hockey 2001 in our new retro set up in the basement. He checked out Papa's old referee shirts. Then he and Grant enjoyed some educational TV and lunch. He happily napped the whole afternoon.

Today, Samuel and friends took advantage of warm weather to build a snow "igloo" with a bit of help from Uncle Grant and Papa.
