I am very proud of Braden and all the things he does. He is so smart and likes so many different things. He is learning so much at school and can read so many words on his own, it is amazing. Here are a few photos of different things he has done during the year.
After the first day in Strasburg, PA, we visited the National Toy Train Museum, went to Thomas the Train day at the Strasburg Railroad, then rode the Strasburg Railroad 45 minute trip through the beautiful Pennsylvania countryside. Part of the other events at Thomas the Train day were getting to ride a miniature train, getting to do one of the pump cars from the 1800s, and various picture opportunities. We then played miniature golf later that evening.
We asked Braden what his favorite thing was for the day and what does he pick? Golf. Not sure how that works out, but that is what he picked.
Braden is getting ready for his big vacation this year. The plan is to go to Strasburg, PA to the National Toy Train Museum, ride a train through Amish country, head over to Sesame Place for a few days, build sand castles on the beach, and plenty of other exciting things.
It is official, our little boy just turned 4. He is such a joy and is too smart for mommy and daddy to handle. He wants to go to McAlister’s to eat tonight and then we are going to the OBU basketball game (men’s only). We are going to try and get them to announce Braden’s birthday during half time, so we may have some photos or video to post later.
It looked overcast this morning, so we opted for the Crayola Factory. It was almost a 1 1/2 hour drive from the hotel, but Braden really enjoyed getting to watch them make crayons and do the different hands on crafts like coloring, using a paint roller and sponge to make a fish drawing, and using scissors and a glue stick to make some abstract art. We used some molding clay to make a few shapes with cookie cutters and ended the day by taking a horse drawn tour of Easton, PA.
Braden really enjoyed doing all the crafts, but he kept asking if he could go back to the Please Touch Museum. Hopefully he will forget about that when we go to Sesame Place again tomorrow.
