the boys rode (and loved) the choo-choo train that goes around the mall. they stood up (breaking the rules already!!) and shouted "choo-choo" out the window at all the shoppers. they loved it so much that they did not want to get off. and when we finally pried them out of the caboose, big-time waterworks followed. i have never, ever seen alex cry that hard. ever.note to self: always do train ride at the end of the shopping excursion.
