A Day Out With Thomas 2013

Saturday morning, we had a T-ball game, then we drove straight to Grapevine, TX for a Day Out with Thomas the Train. It was a great surprise to the kids!

Hiding my black rings under my eyes… (Friday I worked a morning shift from 8:30-1p; a night shift from 7p-7a; went straight to the t-ball game Saturday morning, drove out to Grapevine immediately after the game and spent all day out and about until we came home at 5p! NUTS…)

Awww…they DO get along sometimes!

Drew grabbing Ethan in pure delight: “Ethan! Look at all of the trains!!!” (Ethan with a very serious, obsessed look on his face…’aint nobody got time for a hug when there are trains to be seen!)

The kids are SO excited to get tattoos…hopefully we can curb that excitement for a very long, long time.

Sav and her Rosie (which is still on her face, going on Day 4 now… I promise we clean our kids)

Ethan and Percy, naturally…

And Ben? Well, Benny boy very politely  said, “No Thank You”… you see, he isn’t particularly fond of the idea of something semi-permanent being applied to his skin. Love that kid.



Kids and bubbles… its kinda unreal, right? The attraction never fades, from birth to like… well… I have no idea! We haven’t reached that point yet.

Somehow Ethan finagled the electronic train remote from one of the conductors… yah… we had to pry it out of his screaming hands when it was time to go! ha. Some things never change…

Meanwhile, Mom and daughter just had to stop and get some froyo with as many toppings as we wanted...because on Girls’ Day, you can do whatever you want! (and because if Mom is cheating on her diet, she is most certainly going to make it count!)

The Princess and her love for cotton candy!…

Looks like a lovely family day out!

Just heard about the explosion in Waco and thought of you.

Hope your family and loved ones are safe! Praying for those affected all the way from South Africa.
