We've been pretty busy lately. Sorry if this post is too much for some of you, but for the family who read there are quite a few pics included with this post.
First, we had Easter. Ben woke up Easter morning and was all excited to see what the Easter Bunny brought him. This kid made out like a bandit! Really, I think we went a little overboard. It seemed more like Christmas than Easter. Oh well. It was fun. Here's Ben with his Easter basket:

We were very lucky to get a fantastic deal on a train table, the tracks and a whole mess of trains secondhand through a co-worker of mine. Ben was ecstatic! After we put him to bed last night, Eric and I stayed up and put the whole thing together.
