So Aaron and Alex rode up and down - and up and down - and up and down...
... again and again and again! They must have gone up and down two dozen times! But at least it helped keep Alex occupied and incredibly happy!
Finally it was our turn. Alex decidedly did not want a reindeer, or a candy cane, or a hat, or.... He asked first for a train (go figure!), but got excited when I suggested a sword.
It was like we bought him a Ferrari! (Thank goodness he can still be so pleased by free things!)
