"High times for Melvin!"

Not sure why that movie line just came to me and if you are able to guess what movie it's from, I'll host my first blog giveaway! If you guess right, I'll give away something, not sure what the prize is yet but I'll work on it. Hint: It's one of my most favorite movies. :O)

This day definitely was "High times for Nathan!" We drove into Phoenix on a Friday night to eat and afterwords, we took Nathan to this park in central Phoenix. To lay the groundwork, Nathan is {mildly obsessed} with 'Choo-Choos'. I'm sure he gets this train fascination from his Great-Grandad. During the week, Nathan asked me every single morning, "Ma, C, Choo-Choooo?" [Interpretation "My see Choo-Choo?"] Most of the park trains have shut down due to high temperatures, but this park was still running the train and boy did we get a bang for our 5 bucks at this park!

Here is Nathan on the Choo-choo.

The park also had a carousel, so Nathan rode the carousel horses for the first time.

But this was the real, magical moment. Check out the expression on this face.
If your not sure what that expression is...its called "Wonder".

This is what he is looking at...

And notice he's in the hot rod car...hmm, reminds me of someone...
