"Training" The Grandkids

Model trains were a big deal when we were young. Kathy's family owned Lionel trains and Brian's family had American Flyer. Every child's dream was an elaborate layout permanently set up in the basement or the garage. Of course, in real life most of us didn't have that much room. Moving forward about 60 years, we found a Fisher Price Geotrax set at a nearby yard sale just before our Jake and Taegan arrived for a visit. Before you know it, there was a quite a railroad chugging around the living room. It's fun in this age of high-tech toys to find out that grandkids can still enjoy a model train set. We think our other grandchildren will enjoy it too.
