Leo meets the real Thomas the Train
We kicked off the Father's Day celebration on Friday and took Leo to meet the real Thomas the Train. Joe took Friday off of work so we could avoid massive crowds. Our day out with Thomas was nearly perfect (Joe backed over the stroller as we were leaving the house, but luckily, Leo wasn't in the stroller). On our drive there, Leo napped and woke up just as we arrived to Hood River. Leo fit in with the older kids who were mostly between the ages of 3-7 and played with them as if he were a big boy. Among the highlights of the day were meeting Sir Topham Hatt, getting Leo a Thomas temporary tattoo, playing with toy trains, petting goats, sheep and lamas in the petting zoo, riding a school bus and seeing a full-sized Thomas. Leo was awestruck when he saw the train approaching. He was just trying to process the fact that the Thomas that he watches on television was right in front of him. We all had a blast and Leo even slept on the ride back!
We ended the day by visiting our friends Mike and Angie, who just had their second daughter Veronica Noelle on June 18th. She is so adorable!
