In July, Shad took the boys on a fun father/son outing. Our boys are still OBSESSED with Thomas and trains, and with Nathan being older now, we figured they would love the Day Out with Thomas activity that comes annually. Its up at the Snoqualmie Train Museum, right near the waterfall.
We went two years ago when Nathan was just a wee babe, and Owen was just 2. He still talks about it! It left a big impression! So we bought tickets this year knowing it was a huge hit. Its a little bit expensive, so we decided to keep it a Father/Son outing and let the girls stay home. I'm a little bummed I missed out on all the fun Thomas Time, but they all had a blast together.
The whole event is centered around a 30 minute train ride on Thomas up and down the track next to Snoqualmie Falls. While you wait for your ride, there are lots of other little activities likes building with blocks, model trains, tattoos, pictures with Sir Topham Hatt, coloring, gift shop, etc. And the boys drink up every second. You hit up every station to collect a little prize at the end, which of course, is just awesome if you're 2 and 4!
I'll be honest with you, Shad was not the best at taking pictures at this outing. Granted, it was a hot sunny day, and a little (a lot) crazy with tons of little boys running wild over Thomas, so I guess I can excuse it!
Pictures with Thomas!
Meeting Sir Topham Hatt and giving him High Fives and Fist Bumps!
They are so cute!
Here they are on the actual Thomas Ride. With the train whistle Daddy bought them. They also took turns wearing the conductor hat!
On the train with Daddy! Look at those happy boys!
Having Fun coloring.
Checking out the awesome model trains! My boys love model trains. Every museum that we have visited that has model trains, I cannot pry my boys away! Its adorable.
The boys came home exhausted and excited from their day, plus spoiled with tons of Thomas swag from Daddy! I'm not sure the love of trains will ever fade from this house. It will always hold a special place in our hearts. We love that little blue engine!
