*Electric Trains

~I love the fact that there are so many "grandmas & grandpas" in our ward here! There is a sweet older couple that invited the kids to come and play with their electric trains. In fact they practically invite any children they come in contact with to come over to their garage & play with the trains. Just like a real Mr. & Mrs. Clause! 
So the other night we went over & had a ball! The kids loved controlling the trains, making the smoke come out & go fast and slow through the imaginary village.
(Mr. & Mrs. Clause~a.k.a.Bro. & Sis. Stokes)
~Spencer, Kaylea & Daylan were able to interact with their mentally handicapped son who at first really startled Dude, but then they ended up playing ball together. He really took a liking to Spencer & gave him a sweet hug when we left. It was a great experience for all of us.

Wow that looks amazing! My kids would probably destroy the track, but how cool. Glad that the kids were able to interact with the boy with special needs, I think that really helps kids get an understanding on how blessed they are to be healthy and to be sensitive to the trials others have to go through.
