Day Out with Thomas

This past Friday we met my dad and sisters in Burnet, TX for a day out with Thomas the tank engine. It was a blast. And I got many pictures (Sarah J, I need that script, ha!!)

The boys were SO excited.

the boys also argued over who got to sit with Big Daddy. I think this may be why:

Desi was there.

And Anna with her crew.

Then the boys got to explore various stations. Charlie got a Thomas tattoo.

Then he got to color for awhile.

Chandler also got a tattoo and enjoyed the train table.

Chance's tattoo is on his leg, silly boy.

We met Sir Topham Hat. (Chance was scared of him, ha!)

Then watched Thomas puff away.

Big Daddy, the instigator of this great expedition, and all his grandkids.

And this was my nice, quiet ride home:

So if you're thinking of trying this out, my advice is to get the tickets early. I don't know if it was because it was cold and rainy, but it wasn't very crowded, although tickets were selling out online. They had lots of stations, with balloon animals, a clown magician, a juggler, lots of train tables and a lego train table (or "duplo" i guess), etc. They even had a room where they played Thomas shows. And the tattoos and coloring were a big hit. So fun. All of these stations were free when you had purchased Thomas tickets.
