Summer Fun

It's amazing how fast time flys when one is having fun.  A few weeks ago my family came down so we could all enjoy a day out with Thomas.  It was a very hot day but it was worth every moment of it to see the delight in our little ones eyes as he got to see his favorite train. 
Not only did Silas get to ride Thomas.... who came all the way from the island of Sodor but he got to ride the Strasburg PA steam train as well. 
He also had fun riding the mini steam train with daddy.  Mommy opted out so she could take video.  It's not everyday your little one gets to experience something he loves so very much for the first time.   Silas is just like his grandpa....trains, trains, trains, and trains. :0)
I think this photo says it all as he looks out the window after his first steam ride.  We didn't get a photo before the train left because we were nervous....that we didn't miss our departure time.  Especially since one doesn't get to ride Thomas everyday. :0)
I think we'll try to take Silas again next year.... it just might be a new family tradition in the making. 

On other news I've been stitching up a storm... I'll have two lovely swaps to share with you this month.   Plus a few finishes that I've been making for myself and friends.  I hope this post finds you all happy and healthy. :0)
