CHOO-CHOO!!!!!!

For most of the day yesterday that was just about all you heard from Cameron and Carter! Yesterday was our big Day Out With Thomas the Train! We had to get up super early since we had to be in Tampa by 8:45am for our 9:45 train ride. I am so glad we did it early because when we got off of our train ride it was crazy crowded!

When we arrived the whole place looked like someone threw up Thomas the Train! LOL!! There was train stuff everywhere! The boys went straight for the train table tent and spent a good part of the morning playing there. They also had an activity tent with trains in the sand, sand boxes, and some kind of painting arts and crafts (stayed far away from that part..lol) There was also bounce houses, ball pits, story telling and a hay ride.

The boys had such a good time. The only meltdown we had was when we had to pull them away to go get in line for our actual train ride....they were having too much fun playing with all of the other stuff! We sat in an open air car so the boys could see out really well. Cam seemed to love the train ride and Carter was a little unsure about it. It took about 10 minutes for Carter to loosen up on the actual ride itself.

Dad of course had to get all of the boys their official Day with Thomas t-shirts as well as a couple of other souvenirs! $70 later we had shirts,bowls and an official Thomas train whistle!

After the festivities we met up with some of the "coasties" part of my family for lunch at P.F. Changs. That was, well, an adventure to say the least. They boys had been up since about 6am, no nap and had been totally overloaded with activities so by the time we sat down for lunch they were spent. Lunch was not fun but it was great to see my family:)

It was a great day and I can't wait to take the boys next year!
