All Things Trains!
Jensen loves trains. I mean he adores them. When we sing the wheels on the bus - "the Jensen on the bus says' I Like trains." This kid can't go to bed at night without us reading his train books and he will drive his trains around on his bed until he passes out gazing lovingly at the little engines. So when we found out the Colorado Railway museum brings in a very special guest once a year we knew we had to go see Thomas the train:)


Here the little tyke is with his tank engine backpack and cup. He had a couple of his favorite trains in his bag.

As you go through these pictures you may notice this look on almost all of them. It is the "Where I am is pretty awesome but have you noticed we are surrounded by trains?" look. I don't think he blinked for three hours.

A cool miniature track. They actually had a little Thomas chugg'n along too.
Ringing the bell.
He stamped as many train faces on himself as he could. Right before falling asleep last night I had to say goodnight to the engine stamped on his tummy.Grandma caved in a bought him the t-shirt and hat.

Yeah it was a fun day:)

AND LILY SPEAKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
She turns one tomorrow. Happy Birthday Lily! She says mom, dad, down, and up. She by far uses "up" most often. It usually gets her what she wants- to be held.:) She was pretty tired.

Hi Danica--I see your cute mom a lot at the rec center and this morning she was telling me all about this trip to the trains. Your children are adorable. Send your mom over to my monkey blog so she can check out Cookin school. Oh, and Pie says HI too.

Danica, what a fun outing! We took our nieces and nephews to see Thomas while I was prego with Matthew--BUMMER for him! Hopefully he'll get to see the train sometime. But how cool for Jensen! And I can't believe Baby Lily is 1! What a beautiful girl and handsome boy! You guys make dang cute kids!!

That looks like so much fun. what a dream come true for Jensen to ride a train...Thomas the train. Happy Birthday Lily. I can't believe your baby is already 1!!!

Jensen looks like he had SO MUCH FUN! lol! I'm also really impressed that Lily is using real words. Erin isn't quite yet (she's got momma and dada, and things like yay and wee, but not real words yet. "kitty" comes out "geeyee"). But I guess that must be the difference of having an older sibling there to talk to you too. Anyway, we miss you guys!

We took Ryan to see Thomas this summer too, and it was a lot of fun. Crazy how obsessed they get over that little blue train!
