We had a busy, busy weekend. We fit three events in this weekend…a visit to see Thomas the Tank Engine, Monster Jam and a Heil Family Baptism. We were constantly on the go but it was so much fun!
This was our third visit to the Strasburg Railroad to see Thomas the Tank Engine. Our first was when Connor was 2 and a half, our second visit was when he was almost 4 (and Emily was 6 months) and now the visit was for the girls. He’s been over Thomas for a while now that he is 6 and a half but he didn’t mind going along for the ride. A few weeks ago I dug his old train table out of the basement and set up the tracks and Thomas trains for Emily and Camryn. They’ve been having a lot of fun with them so I thought they’d like to visit the real Thomas, just as Connor had. They were so excited to see him and take a ride on the real Thomas.
Monster Jam came to “The City of Monsterly Love” so Carl, Connor and I got tickets with Paul, Sherry, Christian & Carter and Dave, Gina, Justin, Andrew & Landon. It was awesome!
We arrived in time for the “Party in the Pits” where we got to get up close to several monster trucks. The best part was Connor getting to meet and get the autograph of his favorite monster truck driver, Jim Koehler, who drives Avenger.
