|As soon as we got there, Percy was pulling into the station after a ride.|
|So excited :)|
At one point along the ride, our guide told us that we would be passing Thomas. Unfortunately we weren't sitting on that side. But the man and his son on the other side of the train offered for us to go over and share their window. He didn't have to ask twice. Grant was over there in two seconds.
|I sort of wondered if the man had regretted his offer|
because Grant talked their ears off (they were very nice).
|The man also pointed out this "911 train" which became|
Grant's obsession for the rest of the ride.
|There he is!|
|And he's pulling all those cars (with some help, of course)|
|Excited to ride with Thomas!|
|The boy loves a map.|
|I just love how happy he is :)|
|Grant was excited about hearing Thomas' whistle!|
|Some other trains out on the tracks.|
|They told us Percy would be passing us soon.|
|Waving to the people.|
|He had no desire to wait in line to have his picture|
taken with Thomas, this was as close as we got
(behind him is part of line for pictures).
|They had a firetruck on display for the kids to check out.|
|What kid doesn't want to wear a real fireman's helmet?|
One building was just for model trains and all the little things that go with the model trains. There were so many buttons for the kids to push so they could watch all the little models do things! I'm pretty sure Grant pressed every single one.
|They had a little Thomas too but I didn't get a|
good picture of it.
The building I was most excited about looked like it was undergoing some repairs so most of it was restricted inside. It was the building that had all the old firetrucks in it (and a plane that Grant could see through the window).
After that, it was on to the roundhouse to check out more trains! So much neat stuff at this place!
|From here you can see the turntable that you can ride. Of course,|
we had to do that but it was raining so I didn't take pictures.
|And we got to see Thomas on one of his last rides of the day.|
After that, it was time to start heading back to the car but not before stopping so Grant could run through the hay maze.
I didn't realize how big this place was until we got there. If I had, I would have planned better because we didn't get to see everything. We'll definitely be making plans to go back!
