A Day with Thomas

Grant loves Thomas the Train and refers to any train as "Thomas". I could not wait to take Grant to the annual "A Day Out with Thomas...Hero of the Rails" event in Fremont this year. Andy and I thought that Grant often gets overlooked from his siblings' activities and events, so we would make this extra special and make it a day without Tyler and Madison. It was all about Grant (& Thomas) today!
Here's Grant anticipating the day with Thomas on our way in the van to Fremont. He was incredibly tired and did fall asleep on the way.
The event had several tents with some Thomas activities. This one housed all the play trains.
They even had a bouncy Thomas, but it was a bit too hot to slide down.
Grant wasn't too willing to get his pictures taken with all the Thomas backdrops, but I did get one.
Of course, they had a fabulous tent full of Thomas paraphernalia to purchase. This tent was in the middle, so you had to walk through it to get to the other tents. Good planning on their part!
Grant and Thomas, finally the picture I was waiting for, and smile?!

The day ended with a purchase from the merchandise tent with a piece for his Thomas Train set along with the coolest "I spent the day with Thomas" shirt too.

Yay for Grant. The poor youngest child does spend way less time on typical kids stuff than the older ones. It looks like he had a good time. :)

What a great way to spend the day! I'm sure Tyler and Madison are happy that you decided not to make them go with you. My youngest two were into Thomas also. I still have their trains somewhere around here....
