It was Keira’s 4th birthday today — so we did something a little different. We set up her new Tidmouth Sheds set (birthday present) and set a small track up around it. We then covered it in her birthday balloons (including a couple of special ones from her party) and sent the trains in. It was good fun and a nice little change from our huge track builds (back at it next week)!
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!
A trip to Grandma and Poppa’s with all our train sets was an epic event and lots of family fun. It was nice to have everyone helping out with the build and Aunty Melly had fun dancing over the train tracks with Keira. Somehow Tricky the cat didn’t seem at a all phased at having his house turned into a wooden railway for kids.
A roller coaster was what we aimed for this week. With a double loop and an incline for only the bravest – it was a heck of a track to play with. It also had some good places for a three year old to hide!
