A few nights ago, we all went out to the mall to do some Christmas shopping. Outside of the mall they have a small Christkindelsmarkt. As part of the Markt there is also a train that kids can ride. After we had finished shopping , we took Nate outside and let him ride the train. He was so excited. He ran directly to the motorcycle car. I buckled him in and he immediately began pushing buttons and revving the engine with with the faux accelerator on the handlebar. As Krista and I watched him go round and round the track, grinning from ear to ear, I leaned over and told her, "It's times like these that I love being a parent." It was so fun for me just to stand there and watch him having fun. I'm sure that those who have been parents for a long time can relate and hopefully it gives those who haven't something to look forward to. Have a great one!
