Aidan and Pawpaw's Vintage Railroad Birthday

Southern Lady Gifts By Southern Lady Gifts  in Birthday


Party Recap

Choo Choo! All Aboard! This party was planned for our son's third birthday and my pawpaw's 91st birthday. My son was born on my Pawpaw's birthday and they are exactly 88 year apart. They share a special bond so we decided to throw a joint party this year. My Pawpaw worked and retired from the Southern Pacific Railroad and my son is obsessed with trains right now so this was the perfect theme for the both of them. Lots of friends and family came to celebrate and the birthday boys had a great time.
Choo Choo!

    Hi Meagan, sorry for the delayed response, we were on vacation :) To answer your question, my husband and my daddy made the train. I drew it out for them and they created it from wood. Then I painted it
