Mikey turned 3 in October, and in the past, he hasn’t been a big fan of parties. So we decided to give him an outing of something he loves with a friend or two. We found a place about an hour from our house in Walkersville, MD that is an old steam train depot!
Mikey and his buddies Hayden and Morgan joined us, and our friends the Deschanes drove down from Pennsylvania to celebrate too!
The small building had a little museum inside that made us adults look sideways at each other because it wasn’t much of a museum–but it thrilled all the kids!
We then boarded the train–but before we could, the conductor noticed that we were carrying birthday cupcakes. He asked if we had reserved the caboose (no), and then offered to let us use it for free! We hopped on up to find the birthday caboose was decorated and even had a second story to it so the kids could look out over the train as we took our ride up and back down the track.
We celebrated with Angry Bird and Cars cupcakes, opened gifts, and enjoyed the hour long train ride!
It was a perfect kind of party for our Mister Mike! He is becoming such a little man and learning lots these days! He continues to make our days bright and is still our best snuggler.
