As many of you know, we had Hayden’s birthday party this past weekend at Lineberger Park in Gastonia, NC. We chose this place because of 3 reasons.

1. It was very reasonable to reserve the shelter for 4 hours ..
2. The church was already booked for a wedding on Saturday, April 24th.
3. Hayden’s birthday party was themed around trains; Thomas The Tank Engine to be exact ..

Here is just one of the many pictures from his birthday .. enjoy! (click on image to see the rest of the images on
