1st Train Ride

The kids had such a great time on Saturday. Payton did FANTASTIC. The only thing lost was sleep (if her routine changes or she is anxious, sleep is usually what is affected most). We're all still recovering from that, ofcourse, but the greatest thing was that her behavior wasn't affected. Generally in the past, her behavior becomes awful when her routine has changed or she is anxious. It was wonderful this time......and made us think we might try taking her to "Dora, Live" this summer. Not only does she love Dora - but my son does too......so I think they both would have a ball. Here's some pics from our little train ride. I think pretty much every one on the train 'had' to speak to Payton. She loved saying "Hi Conductor!" and insisted on showing everyone her ticket that got her on the train. She continues to make me come out of my shell :)

I am so glad that things went well. I couldn't wait to hear how great Payton did! I knew she would surprize you. I hope that you get to go to Dora live. Let the memories of family fun begin!!:)

Looks like fun. Please don't tell me that about the sleep. Noah barely sleeps now. Okay, we just won't go anywhere for say, the next 10 years.:)
