Schaumburg Train Show

Apparently it was all trains all the time this past weekend! After visiting the Enchanted Railroad at the Morton Arboretum on Friday, we went to a train hobby show on Sunday! This train show only comes near us every 5 - 10 year so I knew we had to bring Ethan. Ethan was in heaven, there were so many amazing train displays and they were huge. Ethan didn't know where to look first. They also had a Thomas the train ride that we headed to first because it was crowded and we knew the line was only going to get longer. Ethan was so excited and loved the ride!

Of course there were so many cool things for sale but Ethan fell in love with an awesome Halloween train that we loved too! It's a Peanuts Halloween train and it is awesome! I can't wait to put it around our Halloween tree this Fall!

Enchanted Railroad

Yesterday we headed to the Morton Arboretum for their annual Enchanted Railroad display. The train display is four-sided and each side represents a season at the Arboretum. It was a beautiful display, Ethan and Sofia were completely enthralled. They also had buttons on each side that kids could push and something would happen in the display. My favorite part is that the trains run low to the ground. So many things are up high and kids have to crane their necks to see and with this it was actually down at their level. 

We watched the trains for about an hour and then we decided to go for a walk on the grounds since it wasn't too cold out. The kids were so happy to be outside!
