Thomas the Tank Engine

Last weekend, we headed to the Illinois Railway Museum for their Day Out with Thomas event. We met up with some friends and had a great time.
Joey got to meet Sir Topham Hatt.
And there was a real Thomas engine! (OK, so the real engine was in the back of the train, but it looked real enough.)
We had lots of fun with our friends.
Even mommy and Jacob explored some of the old railcars.
More evidence that Jacob was there. (I put him in the carrier after his feeding, and he slept for three hours. Not even the train whistles could wake him up.)
This picture is from our actual ride on the passengers cars pulled by Thomas. We were sitting near the back, so in this shot, the Thomas engine is turning the corner, and Joey sees for the first time that Thomas is "pulling" the train. He saw Thomas in the front of the train before we got on, but here he's actually seeing him in action.
He was so excited!
