Recently I took the boys to the transportation museum, which is located in downtown Roanoke. First we checked out the model trains. I love that they have low windows so little boys can look in.
But they have higher windows for adults, and climbing little boys, too.
Plenty of old cars to examine.
And a large collection of matchbox cars.
I know 3 little boys who really like matchbox cars.
Needless to say, they loved playing at the matchbox car table, where all the little buildings open up with hidden cars inside.
The twins colored trains while Pierce worked train puzzles on the wall.
This was the first time I really let the twins loose to run through the museum.
I told Pierce to always hold hands with them and then I sat in the corner reading a magazine and eating bon bons (well, maybe someday, right?)
A collection of antique pedal cars.
Climbing on trains -
The engineer - doesn't he look happy?
The railyard -
Pierce climbed up in the caboose -
Not much call for this machine in these parts -
One of my favorites - the old trolley
3 happy boys on an old trolley.
Until Reid got scared. But you've already seen that picture.
Reid felt much happier once he got on the playground!
Pierce went to space -
After a picnic lunch we had just one last stop before heading home.
Pierce wanted a penny souvenir.
I put in the money and he cranked and cranked.
A tiny memory of a very fun day -
