Andrew's Day

Oh Thomas we love you! That's Thomas the Tank Engine! Every year since Andrew was three we've taken him to see Thomas.

I love the look on his face. It's one of pure joy and amazement. We hemmed and hawed about going this year, because of the coast, but my whining prevailed and we went. Now I'm praying that God compensates us with the money we spent on tickets!

I just didn't want to miss seeing Andrew's joy this year. He is going to be seven in November and let's face it, he's not going to want to ride Thomas much longer.

As the girls were riding the Ferris wheel, Peter said, "it's our last time here". I felt my heart break just a little.
Well, the kids went on the rides and it was time to go. As we were walking out and I was taking it all in, for the
last time, Andrew said ," bye Thomas, see you next year! "

I just looked over at Peter and smiled.

See you next year Thomas...

Awww -- We love Thomas, too! Charlie is getting to be such a big boy that I love it when he pulls out his Thomas trains and plays with them like he did when he was 2! =)
Hope you get to go back next year =)
