Trains at the Arboretum

Over the Christmas break, we met the our friends, the Elsens, at the Morton Arboretum to view the train display. Up to 38 trains could run on 520 feet of track! There was a North Pole and a ski lift. It was fun for the kids to watch, and they enjoyed pointing out their favorite trains.

After watching the trains for a while, we headed outside to see a log cabin ice sculpture. The kids had fun going inside the "ice cabin" and trying to figure out how the sculptor made it. We have been friends with the Elsen family for 5 years, and our kids are about the same age as their kids. We get together often!
