Day out with Thomas

So my mom wanted to take the boys to see Thomas, She took Ashton last year and he loved it.  This year Noah got to go too.  Also Jason and I tagged along this year.  We had tickets for Memorial day, my mom wanted to keep the boys Sunday night so we just meet them in Heber Monday morning.  The forecast called for highs of around 40 degrees and there was suppose to be snow in the morning.  I had only packed sweatshirts for the boys along with short sleeve shirts so I had to bring with me their winter coats, hats, and gloves.  It was really cold but we were bundled up so it wasn't so bad.  Jason wasn't thrilled with the weather and didn't know why we were still going.  It isn't like we could get a rain check and go back to see Thomas when the weather was better, so off we went. 

Noah was seriously so dang cute, he was so excited to be on the train, he kept saying choo choo and wanting the train to go. 

On a different note, I was pretty proud of my mom for doing the boys hair she did a great job.  She is one awesome grandma, for example while she had them Sunday night Ashton ended up getting croup, so she was up with him for quite a while, she ended up bundling them both up and opening the back door and getting him to breath in the cold air.  Then he went back to bed and was fine, for the rest of the night.  I hope these boys know how lucky they are to have such an awesome grandma who is willing to do almost anything for them,

The boys had a blast, Noah loved every minute riding the train, and Ashton was glued to the window watching everything going by.  We had some moments of stress, but that is typical with our family and dealing with crowds and our children.  We let both boys pick out a train, Ashton choose Salty and Noah choose Gordon. 

Ashton has been doing this lately when ever I ask him to smile, he scowls at me.  Seriously with as many pictures as I take you would think that he would be use to it ans just smile for me.  The quicker he smiles the sooner I put away the camera.

We got to ride the big train, play miniature golf, blow bubbles, play with the train tables, hear a couple stories, and ride a little train car.  All in all we had a great day.

I had to post this picture, I think that their profiles look so much alike.  They even almost have the same expression on their faces.
