A Day Out With Thomas

Thomas came to town and we bought tickets and took Jared to see him since he loves Thomas. It was a lovely morning out. We had an early start since we had to be there at 8:30am. The weather was nice. It was a bit cool in the morning but warmed up to be a lovely spring day. Jared was totally overwhelmed by Thomas. I don't think he could quite believe his little eyes. Our ticket purchase included a 20 min ride on Thomas around the park which was really nice. We tried to get some photos of Jared standing in front of Thomas but he was too interested in looking over his shoulder at Thomas and then he wanted uppie because I really don't think he could understand how it was that Thomas was real. We were a bit concerned that there might be tears, but there were none. He was very excited and nearly waved his arms off when we left to come home. I just don't quite know how we are going to get him to understand that Thomas isn't permanently at Heritage Park!
Again, it was a huge task choosing a few photos for the blog, so here are as many as I could whittle it down to. Enjoy!!!

Incredibly overwhelmed but not taking his eyes off Thomas

Daddy and Jared off for a walk
He had his first taste of Candyfloss (cotton candy as it is called here) and wasn't too sure at first and then he decided that it wasn't all that it was cracked up to be.
I must do what with this?
Blergh! You can have it back!!
Hey!! Where did it go? I want to give it back to you!
That's very funny mommy
Ok, I'll try again...
