Arie is into train toys 
cause that goes along with the vroom obsession :) 

we went to the Meijer Gardens and rode the tram
Arie liked it!

 such a pretty morning at the gardens

then grandpa got home later in the afternoon
and brought Arie to the Choo Choo at the school by their house

all aboard!
