Evan: Can I feed the caboose?
Mom: No honey, you can't feed the caboose. A caboose is part of a train.
Evan: Does it have eyes?
Mom: No honey, it doesn't have eyes.
Evan: Can I ride on it?
Mom: Well, you can climb on it and pretend you are riding on it, but it isn't going to move.
Evan: Can it hop?
Mom: No honey, it doesn't hop. It isn't going to move at all. It isn't a ride like at Silver Dollar City. It is just an old train that sits there.
Evan: Look Mommy! A train!
Mom: Yes sweetie! That's the caboose! It's the last car of a train.
Evan: Let's go ride on it!!!
There's nothing like the joy of learning! The boys thought it was really neat and enjoyed climbing up on it. We were all impressed at how big it was. They don't seem that big when you see them rush by on the tracks. I always loved waiting to see the caboose at the end of a train. Too bad they don't use them anymore. If they do, I sure haven't seen one for a really long time. To see more pictures from our visit to the Caboose, go to: http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=30940&id=1707958162&l=d74748f3d8
