Anyone have any recent experiences with taking the kids on a train ride? We recently did the short Irvine to SJC ride and visited the mission. Grandma and the kids enjoyed the short outing.

Any other ideas for a short outing on the train?

The YouTube videos by Super Simple Learning are a great distraction

Here are some of our favorites:

Somehow I think if I got this thing, those items would come off the grid one by one over the course of a few weeks, and never find their way back onto it.

Went to Cypress Village Center Baskin Robbins at 9:45p tonight - thanks a lot guys for the extra calories!  There was no line but a good amount of people eating outside. 

The Reeses Peanut Butter Cup was the best of the 4 flavors i tried.  Probably going back Thursday.

I like Kids Mode by Zoodles. You have to pay but allows me to control content.
My girls also love the following
Zoo train
Super Stretch Yoga iPad
Bob Books HD
Montessori Crosswords by L'Escapadou
Montessori Numbers by L'Escapadou
Peep and the Big Wide World apps
Some of these may be for older toddler.  I have a 2 and just turned 5 year olds.

So an extra foot over your head makes up for a 3000 sq ft home on a 3000 sq ft lot?  Nice!  So if they give us 11 ft ceilings, we'll have 6 inch setbacks?
I think we'll get there in our lifetime the way IP is going.  I wonder what the resale value of these homes with no yards with be in 10-15 years from today once the new home smell has long gone.

It will probably come down to schools and community.  I know someone that just bought a 1M townhome over at the turtles.  No backyard.. just a patio.

Whatever the sq ft of the home - 200 = lot size. 
I think you missed another 0.....home SF - 2000 = lot size but hey they'll give you 12 foot ceilings.
