Two Christmas hearts

We drove to Miami, Florida that first summer after John was born, and stopped at a wonderful Christmas store by I-95 that beckoned tourists to stop in and check out the largest Lionel Train set up in the state!

We picked up a few ornaments, including this blue heart, in John's honor . . .

And then we repeated the experience when David came along . . .
We tried to find the store on our last trip to Florida three years ago, and we didn't see it. Either it no longer exists, or we've forgotten where exactly it was located. Too bad, I would have liked the boys to have seen the train set up that covered the entire second floor of this huge converted barn. And I don't know if we'll ever attempt that 23-hour drive again. It's such an awfully long ride!
