T is for THOMAS!!!

This past weekend, Jared and I surprised the kiddos with a trip to PA to see none other than THOMAS the TANK ENGINE!

The anticipation of seeing their faces was exciting in itself! Miss K thinks Thomas is pretty cool but Landon ADORES Thomas and I was dancing in my pants thinking of my little guy in awe! As always, our trip was filled with some interesting events including a flat tire that caused an hour detour to Firestone but beyond all of that we had an amazing time that left me more thankful for the smiles that fill my life!

The Strasburg Railroad is a sight to see...the trains are original coal burning steam trains packed with velvet seats and cast iron detailing.  


"Thomas is real!!" 

Landon's eyes say it all...they tell the story of a little boy who loves his trains. 

Getting ready for Thomas to start his engine!

All Aboard!!!

Round and round we go! 

 As we waited to meet Sir Topham Hatt...Landon was dancing in excitment!

Now arriving...Thomas the Tank Engine

There is something about Landon's eyes that continue to remind me of his passion, innocence, and sweetness. I love this guy! 

On our way back to DC we took the back roads and found a great Amish village that showcased local crafts and food. They had a great petting zoo for the kids where they had a chance to feed llamas, sheep, and goats. 

Yeah for play!

Miss K has such passion and zest for life. She finds the greatness in the small things...these pics fill my heart when I see her beautiful personality sine through!

Miss K (aka conductor) assigned us seats where we went for the best train ride in town!

Our little guy was content as always in his peanut shell...I often wonder what life was like without him just three short months ago. He is so sweet and peaceful!   

The best passenger on the train was none other than Daddy-O himself! These trips remind me of the blessing he is in our lives! The best road trip in my life is spending it with my main you babe!

Glad you had a great time. We have been up twice and really enjoyed. I am sure we will be going in a couple of years with Josiah. (Wesley has passed the train infatuation phase).
