jen and bodhi came over today to work on decorations for his birthday party this weekend. jen brought all this cardboard and paint and we helped her make a large steam engine for the kids to play in. it is still a work in progress. she is coming over again wednesday so we can finish it. we still need to add the wheels and make a box car to go with it. the kids loved this project. any day we get to paint is a good day. i just hope i can keep them from destroying the train before the party.
