Driving down the highway into southern Indiana, I said to Adam “this is one of the first times we’ve done something just for the kids.” So many of the things we do as a family are things we did before we had children - gatherings with friends and hiking and picnics and stuff where little ones just tag along. Like many kids his age, Felix is obsessed with Thomas and friends, and I don’t say the word lightly (remember when I made him a Thomas costume for Halloween last year?) So on Saturday morning, we journeyed down to French Lick, Indiana for a Day Out with Thomas. It’s like a little pop up play land with a train ride, story time, bounce houses, bubble stations and photos with the sorta-kinda-creepy Sir Topham Hatt.
I had no idea that Adam and I would have such a good time too. It was so much fun!! My cheeks hurt from all the smiling and my heart exploding watching little Felix, who is becoming such a big boy by the day, rest his head on the sill while looking out the window. Even if we didn’t have photos (and I’m so glad we do!), I don’t think I’d ever forget it. Bea Bea loved it too! What a wonderful day!!
