You all know how much I love trains.
One Sunday afternoon we went for a train ride.
We had so much fun I wanted to go to the train museum (transportation museum). While we were there we rode another train.
Then we rode a working trolley.
Since we had already hit three trains, and we still had a little bit of time before dinner, we went to the fun park and rode two more trains.
That was a total of five trains in one afternoon! Great day or greatest day?
For the third year in a row I ran the Kids ¼ Mile Dash at the Macklind Mile race last weekend. First Daddy and Grandma ran their races. Then it was my turn. I started with Grandpa.
Then the race started and I was flying.
I was running neck and neck with our neighbor until she fell and I passed her.
Finally, the finish line!
I’m 42″ tall now, so last weekend Dad took me to Six Flags. We did lots of the little rides, and a few of the bigger rides too.
We even went on the Screamin’ Eagle, the huge old wooden roller coaster. It was really scary for me, but after we finished I decided I really liked it.
We took a real working steam train on a ride around the park.
We were going to go on another roller coaster, but I chickened out at the last minute. Then it was time for lunch. During lunch it started to rain heavily, with no end in sight so we went home early. I was tired anyway.
The trip to the fun park was great and I hope to do it again soon!
I got my hands on a camera yesterday and I couldn’t stop taking photos. Here’s one I took of Mom & Dad:
Here’s some flowers:
Here’s my finger:
Here’s the obligatory self portrait:
And finally some toys:
I’m learning to ride my bike!
My blog is now two years old. Oh, and so am I.
We had a great party where lots of friends came over to play and my grandparents all visited.
I couldn’t contain my excitement when I started to receive gifts.
Mommy made some delicious cake.
I was prince for a day, even though I continued to wear the crown for a few more days.
I took my third (and final free) plane trip last month to Seattle and nearby national parks.
We saw snow.
We saw mountains.
We saw the ocean.
We saw lakes.
We saw waterfalls.
And we saw more waterfalls.
We saw trees.
And we saw bigger trees.
We saw tall buildings.
We saw fish.
It was the bestest vacation ever, or at least the best vacation since the last one.
with old friends… and my blog.
Swimming is fun.
What’s so funny?
My friend E. was nice enough to give me his old
Maillot Jaune, which I have since proudly worn on many bike rides.
