Our local PBS Station had a Thomas Meet & Greet yesterday… And if you know Caleb at all, you know that he loves Thomas the Tank Engine. LOVES.
We figured hey – free event, easy sign up – might as well try it.
They gave out lots of freebies – meaning a million stickers.
And they had a few ways to keep the kiddos busy since it was somewhat of a long line to get in. Although, it would make a lot more sense to have Thomas trains to play with, wouldn’t it?
Here is Mike looking super excited to see Thomas. Oh wait… 😉
This was Caleb’s face pretty much the whole time: “What the heck is going on?” He did smile/laugh a few times, but he was mainly just confounded.
We obviously both thought it was hilarious when Dad put on the conductor hat.
Then we got to actually see Thomas… And he clung onto me sooooo tightly and refused to even touch Thomas hahaha. Ah well, maybe he was a little young for this?!
Then there were tears. I wouldn’t set him down to go see Thomas again because our turn was over. Toddlers. Sheesh.
In all, it was a great experience that I am glad we got to have! Unfortunately, Caleb was a little too small (and too out of it from not enough sleep the night before) – but maybe Thomas will come back in a few years when Caleb is more ready to see him 🙂
