Train Themed Birthday Party

When asked how old he is, he'll tell you "twee" with a smile.
Can't believe how quick my grandson is growing.  I keep saying next thing we know, he'll be asking for the car keys!  Ugh!  Time, slow down!

With his party held at our house, I gladly volunteered to do the decorations, in a Vintage Train theme :)  The above pictures show the progress of some of my homemade crafts and decorations.

I also had some Glenn Miller music playing in the background :)

He was so thrilled to see the train tracks we taped to the sidewalk and porch.  He pretended to be a train shouting "Choo-choo!"  He loves trains.

The bottom picture shows the train conductor accepting a train pass from one of the adorable passengers, birthday boys' baby sister
The sun was out long enough for everyone to take a swim, except me.  I was busy taking pictures :)

Soon after swimming it was time to eat.  We had pulled pork sandwiches, macaroni & cheese, corn on the cob, train cookies and ice cream cake

By the time he opened all his presents, and blew out the candles on his cake, he was one tired kiddo.  As tired as he was, he still played the whole time with his new toys.  He got lots of trains, planes and automobiles, a coffee cup and some clothes.

Dearest Max, we are all the more blessed because of you and we are so proud of you.  Grandpa and Grandma love you very much!!
