Day Out with Thomas

Rush has loved trains for over 2 years now. He has a train table with all of the Thomas characters and watches the show at least once per week. Playing out scenarios on the train table is his all time favorite activity. We were so excited to be able to take him to take a ride on the real Thomas train!  They had several train and block tables to play at during the event.

The boys got Thomas tattoos.

They had train and track stamps to play with.
Rush didn't want to stop and take this picture, there was too much to do.
We got to see Sir Topham Hat, the controller of the railways.  He had to make sure nobody was causing "confusion and delay".
Cruz ran up and gave him a hug, but wouldn't stand in a picture with us.
About to board Thomas!

He got his ticket punched.

Cruz was pointing and naming things out the window.
They had a little putt-putt area set up.  Cruz tries to do EVERYTHING Rush does.  Even though he was totally dangerous swinging a regular size club (as pictured), we let him follow his brother and "golf".
Rush got a Diesel 10 tattoo.
When we were trying to leave and Cruz slowly squatted down, folded his arms, and said "No, play trains."  It was so cute, I had to snap a picture.  I love that he doesn't throw the usual 2 year old tantrum. He is calm and gets his point across.
