Mike W. sent along this photo of a SkyTrain cake, baked by his wife Paola in celebration of their son Lucas’ third birthday. How awesome!

As you can tell, Lucas is a huge SkyTrain fan, and his birthday also happened to be the day that Canada Line opened this year. Here’s what Mike told us about it:

My son, Lucas, had his third birthday party last night and he is extremely excited about the launch of the new Canada Line. He has loved the SkyTrain ever since we lived by the Expo Line. The first thing he said when he woke up on his birthday was “The Canada Line is opening today!”

Mike also had a great story about Lucas and the cardboard SkyTrains we give out (see this post for more on the paper models!)

We’ve actually made Lucas some toy SkyTrains out of some cardboard giveaways that TransLink provided for us. He was so excited when he got the first one that he slept with it every night. Due to the wear and tear, we then had to create a more solid version of his sky train toy out of wood.

Here’s a picture of the poor worn-out previous SkyTrain, if you’re curious :)

Thanks so much for sharing, Mike!
