Birthday Balloons – #29

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)!

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.

Family fun – #25

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.

Bridge or Tunnel? #24

Bridge? Tunnel? Or a combination of both? We aren’t quite sure what it was we created – just that it was awesome! It all started out with Keira deciding we needed to make wiggly worms, from there they each needed a tunnel and these became double bridges! Ayra thought it was a smart railway – she has her say towards the end.

Weaving the shelves – #22

What better use for a set of shelves than to become the supports for our largest track so far! This weeks adventure has given us a few new ideas so stay tuned for the next couple of tracks to come!

Mountain speed #20

This week we built a mountain and then tested its safety factor – sadly it was a little lacking! But Keira and Tobin had a lot of fun 🙂 Our toy trains flew down the track at a great speed.
