Makeshift Train

About a week and a half ago, Brian flew to a conference back in the states for a week.  Spencer and I took him to the airport.  We got there early so we had some time to kill.  I realized that this might be his favorite place, more than when we sit for hours watching trains at the train station or riding the train into downtown Wiesbaden to go to the "bookstore with trains" (He does sign language to tell me that

Here they not only have a seating area where he can play in a ball pit and climb up into the rocket ship, but it's huge floor-to-ceiling windows are right along one of the runways so we could see planes taking off and landing. There is also a main train station underneath the airport that is a major hub for trains going in and out of Frankfurt. 

But to top that off, they have a shuttle that runs from one terminal to the next.  Sort of like a smaller version of the monorail at Disneyland.  But this one looks like a train. For all Spencer knows, it is one.

So, after Brian had to say goodbye and go through security, Spencer and I sat on this shuttle going around and around the airport.  HE.WAS.IN.HEAVEN!!!  It took some major bribery to get him off.

(Don't judge!  It was way too early in the morning for makeup and this picture of Spencer was just too cute NOT to post.)

This was his favorite part... when we got to the switchtrack.  Looks just like the bigger version of his Thomas train track. :)

Good thing the only cost for all of this is either a train ticket to the airport or the cost of parking. Not bad for some cheap entertainment. :)
