After Ryan grew tired of looking for trucks and tractors on our journey, I broke out the coloring books. He is WAY into coloring right now.
His cars also travelled with us. We had to make a barrier with Papa Blankie so they wouldn't slide all over the table as the train moved.
The train first stopped in Wasco and when Ryan heard the destination he cried, "But Ryan not want go Wasco. We goin' to Hanford!" I had to explain to him that the train made several stops and we had to wait for ours. He then wanted to get off at Corcoran, but I told him that was not the place for us. We finally made it to Hanford to see Grandma. We had a great day with her. She had bubbles, cars, and a trip to the coffee shop for snacks waiting for us. We enjoyed them all. Ryan's favorite part was finding an open patch of dirt at Grandma's retirement community, where he laid down on his belly, yelled, "Dirt!", and promptly started driving all his cars around. Our visit was short, but sweet.
Our last bit of excited was upon our arrival back in Bakersfield. Ryan saw the fountain squirters and squealed with delight. I only wish these pictures would allow you to hear his exclamations of excitement. We loved our day with Grandma and can't wait to do it again.
