The cubby house – #28

Can we wind the track up over the step and through the cubby house door, the window and then back? Well that was what we asked ourselves and the only way to find out was to give it a try. We even had a little bit of fun with a GoPro on one of the engines – a different perspective from down on the IKEA track. We loved Keira’s expression as it came round the bend . Our IKEA toys were given a serious test with this track.

Oh and yes Keira has a rainbow on her forehead – she got that at a birthday party at Kinder – very cool!

The Chicken Yard – #27

Chickens and dogs aren’t known for building train sets — but this week they were part of the action. We took Aunty Melly up on her offer to use her backyard and had a perfect day to do it. It actually turned out to be very hot! There’s something magical about playing on a well cut lawn (thank you Chad!) and at the end of the build we had a chook feed in the middle!

Feel like a run? #26

So it’s 6am on a Sunday morning … what do you do? Go for a run round and round the living room of course! It was exhausting just watching them — at least I had the excuse that I was building the train track (not sure I could have kept up!). This week’s railway took a long time to make — we even took a break halfway through 🙂 It was great seeing Arya really playing with it a the end and Keira found our stacked furniture was good at keeping the tracks in place.
