A Day Out with Thomas
For the second year in a row, Mike and I took Michael and Sophie to Greenfield Village to ride Thomas. Basically it's the same train we ride there several times a year but with the big blue guy pulling us along. It's also crazy expensive for the little you get out of the deal, but we parents are suckers for our kids' excitement.
Last year Michael and Sophie were just getting into Thomas, but this year he is big stuff around here. On the train Michael didn't want to sit in anyone's lap, squirmed to get back down when I lifted him to see Thomas up front when we were rounding a corner, and I think it was because he very literally wanted to ride on Thomas. That's what we talked about all week, and he wanted what he envisioned.
We brought along the grandpas...
...and Grandma and Grammie, too!
I couldn't resist going vintage with this picture of Sophie and me on the carousel.
The village had a number of activities especially for this kids during this event. They really loved the little cars...
...and feeding them gas when they were hungry like Mommy and Daddy do!\
