Old friends and New, My Trains and Politics
We've had some crazy weather this past week here in Portland. Last week there were several days where we got snow. Mom and I still wanted to have fun so we went to the Sip 'n Play with Bodhi and Marisa one day and we also had Guthrie and his dad, Matt, over one night for dinner. I also got to meet a new friend, Andrew. Andrew is Isaac's younger brother and he was born 12 days ago. I thought he was pretty cute and gave him a couple kisses, but I sure didn't like it when Mom tried to hold him. I thought he was better off with his own Mom. In the photo below, he is being held by Aunt Mary, which was okay too.
This week has become much nicer with temps in the 60's, so we were able to go outside for a walk and went to the park a couple times as well. Today, while at the park with Kate, I was able to see some ducks swimming! I had so much fun watching them that I didn't want to leave. :(
By now you all know about my obsession with trains. Well, Mom found a good deal on craigslist for a used train table. Can you imagine my excitement when Dad brought that up the stairs?! I've been playing with it non-stop ever since. Happy early birthday to me! It's a good bet that the three words I use most are 'Thomas,' 'Percy,' and 'James.' :)
On a more serious note: I've been really trying to keep up on all that's happening with the presidential primaries and often ask to see the conventional wisdom page in our newsweek. In the video below, you will see for yourself how much I've learned by watching the debates, reading the newsweek, etc.
