Does anything beat a Thomas the Train (tm) birthday?

There are few things in life as full of joy as a 2-year-old's birthday party. We had all of Sam's grandparents and his Aunt Heather here for the weekend and had a great time. On Friday, we went to Kindermusik in the morning and to Fritz's Train Restaurant for dinner. At the restaurant, a model train that runs around the ceiling brings your food to the table, and Sam could barely sit still and eat for watching all the trains run. The next morning, we went to Carolyn's Country Cousin's Pumpkin Patch. They have a train you can ride (are you sensing a pattern here?) and animals you can pet and feed and tractors you can ride and slides you can, um, slide. All in all, a perfect playground for Sam and he did not stop running the entire time we were there. After his nap, we opened presents and had chocolate cake, the first time Sam had ever had chocolate. He was so excited Saturday night that we could barely get him into bed.

Below you see Sam enjoying his new Thomas the Train Lego set. Click on the picture for more fun pictures from this weekend.

thomas has been a fixture in my family since my oldest was about 2. he turns 9 **eeeks** next month. so you can imagine how many thomas the train b days we have had around here. and with the youngest bring up the caboose so to speak he's still rolling along at the darley household.
you need to look online and find the day out with thomas scheduel and take him on the big thomas for a ride. its a great time.
