This is what creeps me out

He may look like a Really Useful Engine but Thomas the Train just freaks me out for some reason. I don't know if its because a moving face on a train is weird or the strange language they use on the show or what.  All I know, it creeps me out. 

Noah LOVES him and has every train/station/accessory available in Thomas the Train.  So being the good Mommy that I am, when we saw this, we made plans to take him. 

It was a nice, but VERY hot day on Sunday.  After my 5k, we headed down to Parrish to the Florida Railroad Museum where Day Out With Thomas was being held.  Now, I'm not going to lie, it was a pretty cool event.  There were carnival food, carnival games, bounce houses, a mini train ride, a story telling tent, train tables a plenty, Sir Topham Hat, and of course, a real Thomas engine pulling the train.  Our train ride was scheduled for noon so we had about 45 minutes to play around.  We hit up the train tables first then boarded the train.  It was a 20 minute ride and Noah loved every minute of it.  Once it was done, we said goodbye to Uncle Jimmy, Aunt Michele, and AJ (the Hubs's brother, sister in law, and nephew) as well as Gama and Grandfather Hobson (Hubs's mom and step dad).  We hung around for about another hour, taking in the entire Thomas experience.

Super excited to be riding Thomas the Train!!! This face made it all worth it!

Our obligatory trip to the gift shop tent

Mini golfing.....see how white my kids are?!?!?
As much as I can't stand him, it was a really great event.  I just wish it wasn't so hot and that there was more shaded areas.  My kids are white as anything, no matter how hard I try to make them tan.  And no, I'm not the crazy mom that wants tan kids.  I put sunscreen on them all the time.  I just want them to get a little color so they don't look like moon beams in people form.  I'm really glad we got to do this with Noah.  Things like this is what I was missing working my other schedule at the hospital.  We decided to go last minute and you can't exactly make spontaneous weekend plans when you have to work 4 weekend shifts a month.  Yet another reason why I think I'm going to love working in the clinic!!!

I really wanted to link up with Lindsey today for her My Style Monday link up but I didn't take pics of my outfits this past week.  I could post a pic of me in my work scrubs but that's not cute.  I can't wait to show off some of my style!!!
