Sometimes it's hard to get either of my children to pose for pictures. Oh, who am I kidding? It's always hard to get them to pose. One morning I wanted to get some pictures of Sawyer in his Charlie Brown t-shirt and I devised a brilliant spur-of-the-moment plan. He was carrying around a tiny magic capsule sponge that he was very smitten with for some reason. Who needs a reason when you're 2 1/2? So I told him we'd go outside so I could take a picture of his magic capsule train. It worked! Sometimes my ridiculous ideas do pay off. I need to trust my gut more and just try some of the crazy thoughts that go through my head!
This is the magic train. So tiny, yet so precious.
Here's the train posing for a picture on the step. See it beside the pillar?
