Happy New Year!

This is the late week of my husband's 2 week vacation from a busy year at work. We did a lot of stuff and it will be nice to get back to our "normal" routine.

Wednesday we went with my parents to the NY Botanical Garden to see their annual Holiday Train Show. My parents go every year and couldn't wait to take Jacob with them. They thought he would be too young for it this year but after seeing a train set up at a store (which he kept saying WOW) and that they can get us all in for free...what would it hurt to try it this year.

OH MY GOD it was amazing here is a description of what the show is about:
Wrapped in the glow of twinkling lights, model trains and trolleys zip along over bridges and on winding tracks past scaled replicas of New York landmarks made by award-winning designer Paul Busse. Orange slices, cinnamon sticks, poppy pods, pine cones, and other plant parts make a festive brew as the materials used to create the more than 140 architectural reproductions. Among the favorites are the Empire State Building, Little Red Lighthouse, Brooklyn Bridge, and the borough's own Yankee Stadium. The sights and sounds of locomotives with names such as Holiday Steam Engine and the North Pole and Snowflake Railroad are sure to evoke both magic and merrymaking.
