Today we headed to Edaville Railroad , in Carver MA, where Thomas The Tank Engine was visiting. This is our third year making this trip. It's all for Andrew. He loves it, and I love to watch his excitement. I needed this carefree day, there has been a lot of sadness around the "blogs" this week, mainly the loss of Pablo, who I think most every one knows. I needed to watch Andrew just be 5 and laugh and be silly. It was a joy to listen to him explain to Emilia that we were going to "Thomas World," as he calls it, and to break into a Thomas song at any given moment. These moments won't last forever, and I intend on enjoying every single second of them. I even went on the Ferris wheel with Bella and Sophia. I don't like heights or dangling, so there was a lot of anxiety for me! Of course the girls could smell the fear and ran with it,but I did manage to open my eyes for a second to take a picture from the top.
I did learn something this week, or rather was hit in the face with something, with the loss of sweet Pablo, and that is to enjoy something every day. Even if it's not a great day, make something great about it.

Oh Thomas. We've done Thomas many times. But sadly my boys are getting out of the Thomas stage.
