Hello,

Our son will be turning 4 on Sunday August 12th. We're trying to find something entertaining to do for our whole family. We also have a 2 year old daughter. He loves trains, baseball, and swimming, amongst other things. We live in Plainfield and are willing to travel. Help, we would like to keep this day unforgettable.

What can I do next?

How about Blackberry Farm in Aurora or The Morton Arboretum? The Arboretum has an awesome children's area. Another fun place is Ty Warner Park in Westmont. They have a splash park that's fun for the whole gang. You can check all of this out on the internet.

Good luck:)

You could go for lunch at Johnny Choo Choo in Frankfort (bunch of trains inside/out) and then head to a water park nearby... couple in Tinley I believe. Happy birthday!!! :)
