Wordless Wednesday: Look for Trains

I remember reading in the paper once, that scientists had discovered the 'steam-train gene'. The article went on to say the the gene was most prevalent in older men and young boys. I think that the article may have been tongue -in-cheek.....But I'm not sure!

Either way, my little engineer was definitively born with the steam-train gene. This was the day, on our holiday to the NSW North Coast, that he finally got to meet his beloved Thomas (sort of!).


(I just love the expressions in this photo :)



Buster fulfills a life-long dream....sort-of!



I wonder how my little engineer is doing today..... his first day of preschool.

For Wordless Wednesday, I'm linking with My Little Drummer BoysSakura Haruka and Tina's Wordless Wednesday
