The innocence of kids never ceases to amaze me. No other being on Earth seems to become so fascinated with what we adults see as just another part of our daily grind.
Kids and trains are an age old pairing. I know I loved trains as a kid, and I know for a fact that my own father never outgrew his love for them, building more than one model train set in his time. However, no matter how elaborate the train sets may have been, the models pale in comparison to a real deal locomotive.
Little Madeline turned three-years-old last year, and on her special day, her dad took her on her very first ever ride on a great big train. Watch her face light up as she casts her eyes on it for the first time, obviously bringing her tons of excitement, joy, and probably a little hesitation as well. This one is just too precious to not enjoy.
