Thomas the train came to the Northwest Railway Museum in Snoqualmie... and since Blake is obsessed with him, we knew we couldn't miss it! The entire grounds were devoted to "Thomas," there was SO much to do!
here is the life size Thomas that pulled us
they had trains set up everywhere...they even let the kids be the "conductor" and control the trains
here we are standing in line, ready to board the train.... Blake was SO excited he didn't know what to do with himself. He was jumping all over the place, laughing, crying, pretty much freaking out, I think he just had no idea how to control his emotions, it was pretty hilarious!
we finally made it onto Thomas' coaches... Adam made sure to say 'hi' and 'bye' to all the cars that went by
not the best group shot, but proof that we were all there together!
we then stood in line to get to take pictures in front of Thomas, which was a good 30 min wait, but they had some other small trains that we were able to ride while Daddy waited in line!
there was a huge tent with dozens of these tracks set up, along with some mega blocks, coloring stations, puppet shows, Thomas movies, sing alongs, tattoos, food, and a GIANT gift shop!
we got the boys a train whistle, which they love... Blake can only blow into it once before he starts smiling so big he can't do it anymore :)
they also had a little 'treasure' hunt, where you could go to different stations and get your paper stamped, once you got them all they gave the kids a prize... it was a little Thomas view finder camera. Blake took 'pictures' of everything on the way back to the car, we got to see Thomas go by one more time and he was telling everyone in the coaches to 'say cheese!'
the boys were so good all day, we had such a fun day together as a family!
