Birthday Parties & Train Rides!

This past Saturday we had a fun filled day. Nathan's best little friend had her 3rd birthday. She had a bowling party on base and the kids loved it. They got to bowl, have pizza and cake, who could ask for anything more when you're three? It was a great time and the kids truly enjoyed it.

 The neat thing about having your kid's birthday party at the bowling ally is that they set everything up and its very affordable. At Tyndall they supply the decorations, 2 lanes, a few pizza, unlimited drinks, and a gift for the kiddo.

The cake...it looks great from a far....

for some reason Nathan was obsessed with the water fountain...at least he was hydrated right?

After an afternoon of bowling we headed to Bristol, Fl to go to Veterans Memorial Railroad to ride on one of their trains. They have the cutest small trains ever. They have an actual live coal steam engine that we waited in line forever to ride, but it was def worth it. Our little man was so excited over it! We really enjoy going to this little railway and is def better than any Thomas train ride we've been on so far! We will def go several more times while we live in Florida!! And its not too far so def a must see/do if you're in the area!

There was a live Santa show along the ride

Various displays and lights

A live Nativity which was beautiful

the other engine that was running that night as well

Nathan is convinced that Santa comes and takes little kids toys (I still can't figure out why he believes that) so Santa left him a special gift in the car.
