I don't even know where to begin...his birthday party was SO much fun! We decided that with his LOVE for trains, the Galveston Railroad Museum would be a great venue! The museum was destroyed by Hurricane Ike and has just now re-opened and with the help of thousands of volunteers, a lot of the trains have been restored :) We started the party off with a peak at a steam engine...very cool! Then, once all of the guests arrived, they enjoyed pizza and then it was time to ride the train! The mini-train is SO super cute and the kiddos loved it! The entire ride through The Strand, Justin was yelling..."Mommy, I hear the choo choo going wooo woooo!!" He was SO excited! After TONS of people up and down The Strand yelled, Happy Birthday to Justin, it was time to head inside the dining car for cake and singing! SO FUN! It was getting a little toasty in the dining car, so after some of our guests had to leave early for nap time :( We headed off to tour the museum! SO COOL! Tons of trains, historial information, whistles, telephone booths, ticket booths, postal and dining railcar's from the 1920's! It was all very cool and this was the kids favorite part...they were running up and down, climbing on every train possible and after THREE hours of Railroad Museum fun, we decided to load up and say our goodbye's! It was a memorable party, our little man will NEVER forget and we were so happy that all of his little friends came along for some fun too! Jacob was SO mad that "his" friends weren't there, but he said Justin's party was still pretty cool and he now has a crush on Justin's friends' sister! Ha!! We ended the day by opening all of the gifts at home-he got some pretty cool stuff! and then we TRIED giving him a nap but he was SO excited from his happy day, that we listened on the monitor as he said, "Happy Birthday dear choo choo"...OVER AND OVER AGAIN...I guess he had fun??! So, no nap that day but that's ok!! Birthday's only happen once a year!!!
