I’m four years old!

Here’s an old picture I found of Daddy on his fourth birthday.

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.

Train #5

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!
