A Day Out with {Thomas}

Our family has this thing with radio contests...we are those that believe you won't ever win unless you call in.  In college, I won things pretty regularly thanks to my lucky pink flip phone that redialed over and over faster than all the other competition!

My IPhone doesn't have quite the same winning streak as Ole Pink Lady, but lucky for me my Mom's phone still has the magic touch!  She called earlier this week to let me know that she had won tickets to A Day Out with Thomas and wanted to give them to Justin and me to take the boys to.  We had gone before when Perry was Jack Cruz's age, so we were super excited to get to show our newest little Thomas-lovin' boy what it's all about.

As soon as Jack Cruz laid eyes on the Thomas engine, he lit up and started squealing and shaking his arms up and down like a little hummingbird!!  It was for real the cutest thing in quite some time!  Perry, on the other hand, was old enough this year to put two and two together to realize that Thomas didn't talk or use facial expressions...so we had to do a little fibbing and assure him that in Sodor its Sir Toppam Hat's magic that helps all the trains come to life.  And with that bit of explanation he was good to go.  He really loved it all too and was very excited to be there, but a little piece of me realized that he is growing up so very fast, and soon I won't be able to keep all the magic alive for him.  But I will hold on tight to and deeply cherish the magic while it's here!
