Day out with Thomas....
This past Saturday we took the girls to see Thomas the Train in Connersville, Indiana. (You can find info here.....)
To say that they were excited is an understatement! The girls could not believe that we were going to be able to ride the "real" Thomas. When we told them Friday night that we were going to see Thomas, they both ran into the basement to grab their conductor hats. For as long as I can remember, both of my girls have LOVED trains.
When we pulled up to the event and were looking for a place to park....Alexis kept saying "OH, MY GOSH!, IT'S REALLY HIM!" She just kept repeating "Oh, My Gosh". It was probably one of the cutest things ever.
Squinty picture, since the sun was out in full force.

Alexis waiting for the conductor to take her ticket.
Their smiles during our train ride were infectious. Worth every penny I paid for the tickets!!
Luckily we were able to get a seat with an open window, as Thomas was NOT air conditioned.
Meeting Sir Topham Hatt. AKA: The top hat man, as my girls call him.
Alexis was excited to give him a high five.
After a warm train ride we stopped for snow cones. The girls were excited to pick their own flavors.
In the future, I will try to persuade them to steer clear from blue. As of Sunday evening, Alexis still had a hint of blue on her face.
And of course, before we left the girls wanted to ride the "little train".
What an incredible day. It was just one of those great family days that you don't want to end. Minus the fact that we were stuck in traffic for almost two hours on the way home, it was a perfect day!!!
