Day Out with Thomas 2016

Day Out with Thomas 2016

I have to say, I think this year’s Day Out with Thomas was the biggest and best in the four years we’ve been attending this event. Honestly, I wasn’t sure going into it. My daughter is barely one year old, and my son is five, so there was that...

Our Day Out with Thomas Tradition

Thomas the Train is coming to town as part of his annual Day Out with Thomas tour. How do I know? The commercials have started airing on PBS, and Farmboy asks to go every time he sees one. He literally spends the entire year anticipating Thomas’ visit,...

Silly Santa Photos

Here’s one for Embarrassing Family Photos: my son refusing to keep his tongue in his mouth.  What’s worse, this is the best photo out of the four or five the Santa Clause people took.  Oh well, at least his sweater is cute....
