Birthday Recap

Krista and I took the kiddos to Entertrainment Junction for Teag's birthday. If you're near Cincinnati, OH and you have kids, or you really like model trains, you should check it out. They have a huge, walk through display of trains, trains, and more trains. I didn't really get any good pics because 1. they are moving trains, and 2. they are behind glass.

They had alot of interactive displays too. The kids liked being able to control some of the trains and sounds.

There is a play area with Thomas the train tables,

a kid size play train with a coal bin and bell they can pull,
and a jungle gym.
Tess just hung out in the Ergo.
The infamous ant cake

I tried and tried to talk Teagan into a monkey cake or dog cake or anything besides ants, but he insisted he wanted ants on his cake. He likes ants because "I can smash them with my shoes".

Not too shabby, I think. The ants are Raisinettes, in case you're curious, and the "ant hill" is crushed Oreos.

Teagan was pretty excited about his new truck, and REAL MONEY!
All in all, we had a fun day. I don't think Teagan will ever forget the trains. Unfortunately, that means he has requested to go back to see the trains at least 100 times in the last two days.
