So as you can imagine, we could not miss an opportunity to see Thomas in person. And ride around in a real train. So Mom and Dad bought some tickets online and were off to Roaring Camp Railroad in Felton, up in the redwoods of the Santa Cruz mountains. It was blissfully cool and everyone had an awesome time.
Our ticket included a free temporary tattoo. That awesome hat was extra.
|Hey, is that Thomas?|
|Wait a minute, I didn't sign off on this...|
|I didn't know it hurt to get temporary tattoos|
Finally, it was time to ride! Thomas pulled a 10 car train and we were in car 10. It was actually pretty swanky, with plush red seats and little chandeliers! Not that the boy noticed...
|Prepare to be boarded...|
|Still admiring our ink|
And that was awesome.
But we still hadn't seen Thomas!
|THERE HE IS!!!|
|I don't remember how we got him to turn toward the camera. Magic may have been involved...|
|When the driver pumped the steam, we could actually see rain coming from the cloud!|
