Amsterdam to Brussels?

Does anyone know about traveling from Amsterdam to Brussels? Would we be able to do this for a day trip or is it just too much?

Any tips or info would be appreciated!

I am making this a day trip in April. I bought a Benelux rail pass saver. The train ride is about 2hrs and 45min each way. The only catch is on most of the trains that take this route, you must make a reservation, for a small fee. Even though you may have a rail pass. If you do not have a rail pass you must purchase your tickets each way and make a reservation. Here is a great site for train schedules.
