Holiday Magic

Yesterday Joe Joe and I finally got a chance to check out the train display at the US Botanical Gardens. We've been waiting for it to come back all year, especially since he's developed an undying love of trains! It didn't disappoint!

Some of our favorites:

There's a 45 foot suspension bridge and over 800 feet of track which winds through gardens, villages, and fairy tales scenes like the 3 Little Pigs and Rapunzel.

In the main hall all of the National Mall and Capitol Hill landmark buildings are created in miniature using entirely natural materials. I got Joseph to pose with a few...

...but he was so busy exploring that I mostly kept getting the back of his head! Hopefully we'll go a few more times before it ends in January.
