A Day Out with Thomas

This past weekend was the 16th consecutive year for Thomas the Tank Engine to tour.  The tour stopped in 45 cities across the United States and Canada.  We were so fortunate that Thomas chugged into Globe, AZ - just about an hour away. 

From the moment we arrived, Nathan was beside-himself-dancing-in-line-slap-happy.  It was 3 hours of unabridged train phenomena and Nathan couldn't have enjoyed anything more.  

We met the train engineer.

We rode an old double decker train (that Thomas was pulling - wink, wink).

We got a 'Jr Engineer Certificate' during the train ride.

We met Sir Topham Hat also known as The Fat Controller. 

We played with Thomas train sets.

But the very best part of the day was seeing Thomas the Tank Engine up close!

It was the best day EVER for this little 4 year old!!!
