I thought we'd spend a couple of hours- but we ended up staying FIVE.
It houses the world's biggest indoor train display. Everything was really really cool. Tunnels, bridges, water features, mountains, and everything else you could think of.
the little cities were unreal. SO DETAILED and pretty impressive.
check out the little farmer's market!!
they had a huge kids play area with climbing toys, trains, and all sorts of other fun stuff.
she also loved napping. I can't believe the boys still had energy after spending the first half of the day swimming.
The place also had an outdoor hand crank little kid train ride. I'm impressed the kids kept riding/driving it. It looked pretty tiring cranking that thing!
the 'thomas' ride was pretty darn fun, too. Kent and Metta and I could even ride it. It took us around the outside of the building and through a little pumpkin patch.
For whatever reasons I wasn't supposed to take pictures while it was moving-so I totally cheated to get the above picture. And snapped this one fast while we were getting off.
for Halloween they actually renamed the place "Jack-o-lantern Junction". There were fun halloween crafts- and kid friendly haunted house where we did trick or treating.
It was pretty fun- besides the room covered in crazy cockroaches!! totally reminded me of on eof my apartments in russia. seriously :)
A fun house with crazy mirros.
It's supposed to be pretty fun at Christmas time, too- so we'll be on the lookout for another groupon :)
