Joshua loves trains. In early September, we took a drive with Karl's Dad to Conway, NH for a ride on the Conway Scenic Railroad. Joshua thought that the big trains were great and before the end of the ride we had him pulling his hand down pretending to blow the train horn and saying "Choo-Choo". In the weeks following our train ride, Karl ordered a bunch of wooden trains for Joshua to play with. They are rather difficult to find in Thailand, so we made sure we stocked up before flying out. Pictures of Joshua playing with the wooden Thomas trains are down below, after the Conway Scenic Railway pictures.
Joshua carefully links up the trains. Getting the magnetic poles going in the right direction occassionally poses a problem for him.
Joshua enjoys making his trains as long as humanly possible, despite encouragement from Dad to make more manageable shorter trains
