Chugga Chugga CHOO CHOO

Today we went to Lappa Valley Railway. Robbie LOVES trains and has been begging to ride on a train for a LONG time. It's ironic though because when we first moved to Cornwall we lived just a 10-15 minute walk from this place and we never went. Boy, we missed an opportunity and we had such a nice time. We got on the little steam engine train, just like the ones I remember from the zoo when I was little and it took us 3 miles to another little station where there was a boating lake, a really nice playground, a maze, a nature trail, 2 other train lines with one to a soft play area with trampolines and ball pit, and crazy golf. In total, the kids got to ride 3 different kinds of trains and we had a great afternoon out. Robbie was in heaven and Natalie enjoyed herself as well.

Natalie insisted on taking a picture of the ticket and MADE me put this here on the blog, she was excited to because the guy came just after this and punched our ticket like on the Polar Express!

A really cool maze made from bricks, Robbie cheated and didn't really finish
The trampolines & ball pit

The kids were acting really silly on the ride back from the trampolines. Robbie with his Home Alone face
Natalie too
Creepy eyes, yuck

What fun! I love that maze - I mean in that you could take the challenge but not get lost and freaked out. . . What a great activity!
