Day out with Thomas

Thomas the train made an appearance close by. He pulled into Tweetsy Railroad in Blowing Rock, Nc and we just had to take a ride! This was my first experience going to Tweetsy, Brent had been  before when he was young. J.Riley is not super obsessed with Thomas the train..not with anything really. He does like him and loves riding on trains so we gave it a shot. I have to admit the morning started out pretty rough. The ride there was full of whining and fighting and I just knew our day was going to be a bust. So what do you do? PRAY!! It ended up being a great day. We got there at about 11:00 and ate lunch right away to beat the crowds. Rode a few rides and then boarded Thomas at 1:00. We spent the rest of the day riding rides and eating ice cream!  Tweetsy is just the right size for toddlers. Not to overwhelming but big enough to spend the day. J.Riley is our daredevil..he wants to ride every ride and on his own of course. Ava was unsure of almost every ride but if she was clinging our shirts, she did pretty well. They were happy and very well behaved. Ava even made it until 3:30 without a nap or a melt down! I would definitely recommend the trip!
