Day Out With Thomas
Over the weekend, we went to see Thomas the Tank Engine at Didcot Railway Centre. Elliot is mad about trains at the moment. His love for Thomas might even surpass his love for Lightning McQueen.
He amazes me with how much information he's picked up from watching the show and reading the books. He knows about steam and funnels and coupling rods and signals.
I was a little worried that he would be a little overwhelmed by seeing such large engines in person, like he was when we 'met' Lightning McQueen, Mack, Sally and Mater (did I ever tell you about that one?) but he wasn't. He had a silly little smile on his face when he saw Thomas and Duck and Percy and Diesel (see, I know their names too)!
We really had a great day. It was nice to have us all together, the weather was great. Even Joshua had a fantastic time. He's such a lovely little boy and he's no fuss at all when we take him places, even when his sleeping and feeding schedules are all mixed up.
I really hope that we've given Elliot some wonderful memories and that he'll be talking about this for a long time to come...
