A day out with Thomas the Tank! :)

What a fun day today! Today we took our annual trip to see Thomas the Tank! He comes to town only 2 weeks out of the year and we have been taking little Tony since he was just 6 months old. What a fun day out for us and to see his little face light up is absolutely precious. Although he's not really into Thomas anymore (it's all about Spongebob and Power Rangers now!), he still enjoys the trip to see the real engine - sorry the photo is sideways, I'm still trying to figure out a few things in blog world! Just leaaaaaaaaaaaaan to the right! Tee hee! He gets a big kick out of seeing him roll into the huge depot station, eyes actually moving around and smoke billowing out. Lucky us, this year we got to sit in the Thomas car! Every year we end up in the double decker car or the Caboose ;) This is such a special family day out for us, knowing it doesn't come around very often and gives us the wonderful warmth of celebrating something special with our little boy (being raised around so many girls!) If you ever get the chance to go, DO IT!

This sweet little face pretty much says it all :) He was all smiles and in his glory watching the tracks out the window and listening to "rolling along"!

Legos anyone?! Inside the train depot, about the size of an airplane hangar, it was filled with a bazillion stations with activities and things to do (as well as a huge carnival outside!) A little boy's dream come true!
FORE! On his way to the PGA! :) One of the cheesy little golf stations they had set up with about 10 rounds ........ can't go wrong with mini golf. He actually got one hole in one, but then again, the "grass" was only 3 feet long on each round, lol! ;)
Look what I found!!!!!!! A stamping station!! Ha ha!! There had to be 50+ children's activities inside the hangar and I instantly spotted these wooden, very kid used Thomas stamps! ROFL!! My girls hung out here while I went and played all 50 stations or so ;) I thought this was hilarious ~ it was an empty table, save one dad who was sitting there fixing his video recorder I think we should have showed up in mass and had a impromtu crop, whatcha think!!?!! :)
