After the party, Bapa took the boys to the train store, one of their favorite places, where he picked out a red caboose. After food and a nap, he opened the rest of his presents, mostly involving trains or violins in some form. More singing and sweet treats followed, and the result was a very happy and very tired little boy.
Happy birthday sweet Elliott! We love you more than you'll ever know.
