Railway Idol

October 20, 2014

If you’ve ever been a fan of anyone or anything and you finally got the opportunity to meet them, would it not just blow the socks completely off you? Well Keane had such a sock blowing experience this past weekend. A “short” 2 and a half hour drive (only short if you do it without a 2 year old and an 8 month old, otherwise, very long. Google maps needs to add that to the small print) south of Atlanta in the small railway town of Cordele, we got to spend the day with Thomas the Train. I know, you can’t believe it. You’re beyond jealous, and you should be. Keane has been a fan of Thomas for over a year, so when I found out about the “Day with Thomas the Train” there was absolutely no way we were not making this happen for him.

We arrived bright and early to find Thomas shiny and beaming in all of his blueness.

It was so hard to get Keane and Cullen to look at me for these photos. They just couldn’t take their eyes off their railway hero.

All aboard for a ride with Thomas.

A little assistance from a Thomas helper.

Perfect seats.

Cullen has no idea whats going on, but he’s caught up in all of the excitement.

Thanks to the lady sitting across from us for offering to snap a family photo, now there’s proof I was there too.

In this moment, for this 2 year old, life doesn’t get much better.

Hmmm, our early start was being to catch up on some of us.

Back to the station, safe and sound.

Playing on a mini Thomas.

Just chillin in front of a fake station, waiting to meet Sir Topham Hatt.

And there is Sir Topham Hatt. I wouldn’t say his personality was the warmest or fuzziest, and the kids certainly approached him with great caution.

And Cullen couldn’t quite figure this guy out.

Awaiting our ride back to the car park after a very enjoyable Day with Thomas the Train.
