"Thank You, Thomas!"

On Friday, Larry took the day off and we went and saw Thomas the Train at the Heart of Dixie Railroad Museum in Calera. It was one of our birthday presents to her and such a fun family outing! We got to take a real train ride on Thomas- the train just goes out & back, but it's about a 30+ min ride- just enough for an *almost* 2-year old! There are also lots of other fun activities- storytelling on a train car, electric model trains, play train tables, bouncy inflatables, a petting zoo, and a gift shop with more Thomas stuff than you thought existed.
All Aboard!
Georgia & Lincoln enjoy the view on their first train ride!

Georgia loved playing with the train tables.
Enjoying storytime- this lasted about 5 mins! Sitting still is not her specialty!

She got to pet cows, bunnies, a pig & feed the goats.

Lincoln's had all the fun he can handle!

I wasn't sure how much Georgia would understand, as she's only seen Thomas' show a few times, but she loves trains. But she really loved it! While we were on our train ride she kept "choo-chooing" and saying "Thank You, Thomas!" We had given her a toy Thomas and Thomas stickers as a "train day" present and Thomas stayed by her side all day, even sharing her yogurt that night. It was a great day with lots of sweet memories! Thomas is here thru next weekend and we highly recommend it to you & your little train-lover!
"Thank You, Thomas!"
