Cousin Hayden LOVES Thomas the Train, to say the least. He's been going to A Day Out With Thomas since he was 2 years old. Last year Rainah and I joined them at Greenfield Village- it was a cool, rainy, yucky day, but it was still fun. Rainah was a bit young to enjoy it, but this year was a different story. Jill decided to try out Huckleberry Railroad this year, so Don, Rainah, and I met up with everyone else this morning. Mom, Dad, Jess, Dave, Jill, Hayden, and Talan were all there. We had an 11:00 train ride, and got there around 10. We walked around a bit, then got in line for the train where Jill almost got into a fist fight with a family who cut in line.
The train ride was beautiful and was 40 minutes long. Rainah was really good and had fun looking out the window and reading her map.
After the ride we had a picnic lunch, and then hit all the activities, including Rainah's personal favorite, the bounce house! She saw that thing when we first got there and couldn't wait to get her shoes off and get in there. We also saw some farm animals, got to color, and go on some rides, including a carousal that went pretty fast! I thought Rainah would like a Thomas (temporary) tattoo since she loves to get stamps on her hands at Gymboree. She let the lady put it on, but as soon as she saw it on her arm, her little lip came out and she sobbed. No idea why, but it was pretty funny. It was such a gorgeous day and we had a great time! Rainah fell asleep in her stroller as we were walking to the car and slept for most of the drive.

Rainah got to the top and didn't realize it was a slide. She just stood up there trying to jump and bounce.
Hayden finally had to go back and get her to come down... and then she didn't slide... she walked.
