First stop: Stasburg Railroad -
We made it just in time for the 1:00 train.
The conductor asked Aidan what it said on his shirt...
so Aidan showed him.
It says Rad =)
We made it to Paradise....
now it's time for the engine to take us back to Strasburg.
Is someone getting tired already?
(and my camera battery died..thank God for my phone camera!)
Time for a snack and some looking.
They sat in an Amish buggy!
Aidan wanted to be sure it wouldn't go anywhere =)
Time to head to the next train stop.....
Next stop: Choo Choo Barn -
I loved this place as a kid.
We had been there with our older kids too.
Wasn't even sure it was still in business until a short time ago.
We loved this train place!!
Everybody from this area knows what that building represents...
Aidan really wants to go there.
I told him maybe next year for Grands Day =)
Yep, they are just loving this!
Aidan and Ellen wanted to go through it again.
So Pop Pop went with them and
Nana stayed with Zoe and Paityn.
We visited the gift shop....
Zoe loved these!
Paityn looked at books.
And tried on hats.
We went outside to play on this little train.
After a looonnnngggg time,
Pop Pop, Aidan, and Ellen were finished!!
We found this train table near the Thomas Train shop.
They loved it!
They had fun on this little ride too!
Next stop: Chick-fil-a!!
We were HUNGRY!!
This quick food place is soooo family friendly. The management and staff set the tone and everyone follows. The kids are happy, the parents are happy, because.... you truly are treated like a guest! Talk about feeling valued!
Excited face =)
Paityn watching some kids play
while we eat.
Looks like Aidan ate his chicken nuggets....
It's time to play!
Then, time for ice cream
As we were getting ready to leave, I noticed my Aunt Alma and cousin Joanne come in.
How sweet to have a quick chat with them!
Sweet tired Zoe.
Paityn gave in to her tired eyes too.
But this young man declared
he was NOT tired!
He didn't sleep, not a wink =)
Memories made. I'd call that a successful day.
