Day Out With Thomas the Tank Engine

Looking out through a LEGO Thomas Train.

Riding the LEGO Thomas Train

"I see Thomas!" Adam was equally excited but because of where they were standing, I could only get one first reaction.

Taking a break for a drink. It was hot and we did a lot of walking.

The boys, MiMi (my Mom) and Me on the train ride.

Nick and I on the Thomas train waiting to depart for our ride.

Patiently waiting.

When the train begain to move, Adam let out a REALLY REALLY loud "All Abooooooard!!"

It was so hard to get them to stand still for this picture. It didn't turned out as good as I hoped, but I'll take what I can get.

Mom and her boys!

We had a wonderful time. Did you wonder where Ray and my Dad were in the Thomas pictures?
For many days before the festival, it rained. That in turn eliminated most of the parking at the event. Police were parking people on the other side of town at the schools. There was terrible traffic and Ray and Dad decided to drop my mom, the boys and I off so we didn't miss the train ride because we had to catch the train at 12:15. Ray called me about 1/2 hour later and said they wouldn't make it back because of the crowd. There was no where left to park and they couldn't even get close to the event. So they went and had lunch, drove around and picked us up later.
It was a little disappointing but we still had a really great time and not too many melt down's since all of this occured near nap time :)
