Thomas the Train

Yesterday we ventured up to Snoqualmie to spend the day with Thomas the Train! Luca has branched out from Ella's barbies and princess dolls to find out what he loves, and that is trains! He's so in to Thomas these days and we knew he'd love this! There is a couple in our church that go every year so we went as families this year and had a blast! 

I love the look of wonder and anticipation on this face as he sees Thomas approaching around the bend...
 Thomas! He's real!
 Aiden, Luca and Ella
 Riding the speeder car!

 Meeting Thomas...
 
Then it was time to hop on board and ride Thomas!
All Aboard!

When the train started to move...
Playing on the train tables. This is the exact one we got for Luca for his birthday and he thought this was his haha.


Playing on old engines and cars...
 Luca said, "chugga chugga choo choo!"
 Lunch time with the Thomas band! When one of the band members asked the kids if they knew what bears ate, Ella answered, "little kids!"We later saw her in the bathroom after the Thomas event when we went to see Snoqualmie Falls and she remembered Ella and said she was the funniest part of her day!
 I think this means, "stop taking my picture mom"
 Ella and Daddy dancing with the band after lunch...
 Meeting Sir Topham Hat! Ella was excited...
 Luca was not...

 My little conductor showing off his tattoos and stamps...




 Ella chose Rosie, the pink train of course :)

 Ella and Aidan in matching Thomas hats!

 Ella enjoying the puppet show...
Since we were in the area, we stopped by Snoqualmie Falls. It was absolutely beautiful. In Texas we had duck crossings. In Washington we have dear crossings haha... 
Snoqualmie Falls. Majestic. Hard to believe this exists just about 45 minutes from the city.

July has been fun! 
Tomorrow, the kiddies and I are off to Arkansas to spend a couple of weeks with the family!
