US vs. France

This is the sign on the boys door to their room.  "NO BaB"  (no babies)
Last week I had a GREAT find at The Salvation Army....a $14 Thomas The Train Table!!  The boys have been having a blast playing with it.  Funny thing is, it's just the table.  Not all the trains, tracks, and bridges that some of their friends have. 

Just a table.



But according to them they have made it a country.  France to be exact.  The throw carpet in their room is the USA...everything in between is the ocean of course. 
They have set up a very elaborate stage.  Sadly the US and France are in war right now....and French are wooping butt.  Honestly, I don't think America has a chance.  The French army consists of Jedi's, dinosaurs, and Batman. 




Gavin's 4th birthday is next week and I thought about getting him a train set.  But why?  I love going into their room and seeing what their little minds have created.  They seem to be having fun without it!  Pure joy and imagination.

Such imagination! I have so many ideas for just the table too - I don't even care about the train stuff!

That is awesome!

I love when kids actually USE their imaginations...it's sad these days - so many kids just sit in front of TV/Video Games/Computers (LOL as I sit at my computer!) and never really explore that.

We love watching our kids pretend!
