Choo-Choo Barn

We spent most of our morning here at The Choo-Choo Barn. My kids are big into trains so this was wonderful for them. We go to all the local train displays around the holidays each year, but this was amazing

some of the trains and models we saw, there was so much I could never post it all here. The boys got birds eye views on Doug and Pops shoulders and the girls loved all the scenes. And of course we could not leave with out a photo of Thomas.

This Amish barn raising model was amazing every person on it moved, either hammering, climbing ladders or sawing, really neat to see, there was a sign that said this took 100 hours to build.

when we left and had lunch at the restaurant next door the kids hoped on Thomas for a quick ride:-)

After we left the train displays we headed up the road a bit to Strausburgh to ride the big trains, will post those pictures tomorrow.For my train loving kids- Doug included- this was a perfect day. They do come by it honest, my father, step-dad and father in-law are all train buffs.
