He pulled out this book and noticed the "track" on the cover. Mom I want to build that track. Oh. Good. A completely over complicated and precarious car track built out things that we actually have in our house so there's no good reason I can come up with for us to not try it. (Except that you'll attempt to play with it once, it will all fall down, and you'll scream) Okay, Wilson, I'll get your box of blocks, you bring down your train tracks.
This is the town we came up with
Flo's V8 cafe- note the V on top
Mini Sally at the Cozy Cone Motel
Luigi and Guido at the Casa De La Tires (and roundhouse)
Guido is fixing a train car under the careful supervision of Luigi
Mater's shack and Chuki's (the Japanese reporter's) chic flat
Red (and wanna be Red) at the fire station complete with statue of Stanley
Sheriff's police station
Doc came to visit and split into multiple personalities (regular Doc, McDonald's Happy Meal & completely out of scale Doc, and pit crew Doc) Also pictured are a police car, policeman action figure, and a chimney sweep action figure- have I mentioned I finally got a chimney sweep to come- no more squirrels, yea!! (and a free chimney sweep toy straight off the last barge of lead paint filled toys from Hong Kong) We're super excited.
Exhibit A of natural habitats- the monkey cage
The "Ice Area" of the zoo- home to the polar bear and Yettie Truck And last, but not least, a home for the many faces of Lightning
("Sparkly, Dirt Track, and Regular")
In case you're wondering, I have no make up on, Wilson's still in his pajamas, it's 2:30 and we haven't eaten lunch, and I've responded to two screams of "it fell, it fell" twice during this post. Miller's taking a nap now, but she was surprisingly entertained with our construction while she sat in her swing and gnawed on a snail teething ring.
Wup . . . Make that three screams . . .
