it's because I don't post much anymore. This may change at any time. But PLEASE feel free to look through our Flickr stream (over on the right), which is updated almost every day.

Boys Fourth Birthday - Invites

Each family was sent an invitation that included a grimacing image of a railroad baron, a map to the party, and enough train tickets for each child in the family. The image of the man was taken from the website of Sid Meiers Railroads!, which is a really cool train simulation game.

The boys party will be held at the home of a retired IBMer who has spent much of his adult life building a small railroad at his home in northwest Rochester. It includes such things as a hundred foot long tunnel and a trestle bridge. He is my friend Matt Larsen's uncle, and is well known for holding these parties for free. (Though you are encourages to make a donation to the "Coal Fund.") The kids have been to the property once before and loved it.
