He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing. "

A Day Out with THOMAS!!

A couple of weeks ago our sweet Grandma and Grandpa Werley met us in Grapevine, TX and we had the chance to "meet" a very special friend around our house: THOMAS the TRAIN!! Austin is a huge fan of all things that go and make noise, but Thomas is one of his absolute favorites. We have the train table with all of the Thomas and Friends trains and Austin knows all their names and even sleeps with 3-4 trains every night. So, this was a chance of a lifetime as far as he was concerned. It is so awesome as parents to watch one of your kiddos dreams come true right in front of you! It was a magical time that I hope he never forgets.
Here are some pics from the day:

The official "Ticket to Ride"

Here he is! I wish we would have had a video camera to capture Austin's face when he saw his friend for the first time. It was priceless and he was so excited!

This is not the greatest pic. It just happened that right before as we got there a major cold front was blowing in and it turned out to be freezing cold and very windy. I unfortunately wasn't as prepared as I should have been, but we survived.

Austin meeting Sir Topem Hat. Too cute!

We are on the train where it was much warmer!

My sweet and happy boy!

Daddy, Audrey and Grandpa Werley enjoying the ride.

Austin loved sticking his head out this window and walking up and down the aisle of the train asking A LOT of questions about how it all worked. Thankfully Daddy and Grandpa are smart guys! :)

Austin also got to pick out a very special train to remember the day. He was bouncing off the walls the entire trip! I love days like this one! To see my children with so much pure joy is such a wonderful thing! Austin still asks when Thomas is going to "come and visit him" again. I love it!
