If it looks like we're cold in these pictures, it's because we were. This year we had the coldest weather on record for October 6 in Oklahoma City, so we spent the rest of the day hanging out by the roaring fireplace. Silas' often bland look is the result of both camera-shyness and illness at the time. Don't let the pictures fool you; he had a ton of fun!
Waiting to ride on Thomas
Seeing Thomas at last. Silas was cracking us up...
as we parked and slid open the van door you could
plainly hear Thomas' "peep peep" as he was pulling into
the station. BJ and I excitedly asked him, "Do you
think that's Thomas?" He said, as though guarding
his emotions, "Uh....maybe."
Even Georgie got in on the fun!
We got to ride up top...even had to climb a ladder to get up there!
It's a good thing that my boys look beautiful in orange.
That 'James' tattoo was a source of pride for some time
before it eventually got scrubbed off in the bath. On
one hand, the tattoo, and clutched tightly in the other
was the toy "Diesel" engine that Grammy and Pop bought
for Silas in the gift shop.
A giant thank you to Grammy and Pop, and to all of you in Silas' life that share his enthusiasm for Thomas with him. He loves talking about Thomas. If you missed the Thomas Masterpiece some months back, you might want to check that out for your edification as well.
