A few more

Two more layouts made with Echo Park.
My son is addicted to trains.  He eats, sleeps, breathes trains.  So when he struggles with something (like potty training or learning his letters), we offer him a trip on a real train if he succeeds.  It usually takes about a week and he's nailed down whatever he needs too and we get a nice family day out of it too.

We pack a bag with snacks and drinks and take the train down to San Diego.  Some of the cars have little tables between them so you can eat, play games etc on the ride down.  Its usually over an hour so we have lots of time to hang out.  The best part is the view.  A good chunk of the trip is along the coast and the views are breathtaking.

 One from a couple of winters ago.  It stays pretty warm here late into the year.  Sometimes on warmer evenings we head down to the beach to catch the sunset.


  1. We have a friend who is obsessed with trains (airplanes too). Your story made me smile. Love your wonderful pages!

  2. Very pretty layouts. I like the pictures in the second layout.

  3. Wonderful pages! Love the clean lines and crisp take!

  4. Both of your layouts are lovely.
    Your little one is so cute, such a sweet photo :)
