A day out with Thomas

Yesterday we indulged the boys obsession for all things Thomas the Tank Engine by taking them to York for a day out with Thomas and his friends. Obviously the boys were thrilled and what 3 & 1 year olds wouldn't be? They got to meet the Fat Controller and see the trains that barely resembled the real thing, good thing toddlers are easily fooled! Here are the boys and Rob posing with Percy (supposedly) after our ride on Annie and Clarabel.
Watching Diesel arrive, shunting troublesome trucks. Below meeting the Fat Controller and Thomas himself.
Eli waving the flag stopped smiling the second I got the camera on him, typical!

That last picture of Eli puts me so in mind of you.

I love the Fat Controller. Americans would never have made that up. I miss England. Sigh.

I don't think we'd be allowed to make that up now, but thankfully in the 80's we were allowed to insult people freely. Now he's supposed to be called Sir Topham Hat. That's not nearly insulting enough for our family!
