A day out with Thomas and a birthday celebration

My kids (well Tman really) are obsessed with Thomas the train. Every year, Thomas comes to town and it makes for a day of fun activities and hanging around trains and more importantly Thomas the train. We took the kids last year and they loved it so we decided to make this a yearly tradition until they get bored with the whole thing.

Our family picture with Thomas the train, Tman isn't looking but with 3 kids we are just happy when they all make it in the frame.
When we got there, we put the big boys in the stroller and I carried Bean. Our family of five ready to tackle the day. Luckily it was a beautiful sunny day.
They have loads of fun activities for the kids which makes for a great day of fun. My mom, hubby and the boys on the caroussel
Jbird was not too sure about this ride but he went on it a few times
Tman on the other hand was loving every minute of it
Hubby with Jbird, this is totally his mini me. They have the same laid back and mellow personality
They also had a jumpy house and Tman was in heaven. This kid loves to jump around so anything that allows him to do so is his favorite thing to do
It was an obstacle type course, gosh my first baby looks so grown up
Jbird also wanted to enjoy the bouncy house even though he was clearly too small. However, with lots of help from the staff he was able to go through the entire obstacle course. He was so happy and proud of himself
After doing the activities, it was time to go meet Thomas and take a ride aboard the train. We didn't do this last year but I made sure to buy the tickets early this year so that we could make it.
The best family picture we were able to get on the train
Tman was super excited and very happy that I brought some snacks for the ride
My big boys rolling their eyes
After the ride we went back inside for some story time and to unwind before we hit the road. My mom and Jbird chilling. I love that my mom is always available to hang out with us and the kids
Because it was my birthday weekend, my hubby got me an awesome cake and my brother and grandma came over when we got home to wish me happy birthday. I love my family, they are always there to celebrate every special event. Jbird was unfortunately not on these pictures because he fell asleep on the way back home and went straight to bed when we got home.
I love my family and I am so glad that they live so close so we can always hang out often
Last weekend was a busy busy weekend because of the day out with Thomas and celebrating my birthday. You know you are a parent when your birthday celebration revolves around what your kids will love. We had a great day out and that strawberry cake was so yummy. Last weekend was such a good one, hope you had a great one too.
