Guess who came to town the other day… Thomas the train!
Thomas was in town at the Colorado railroad museum. Aaron got tickets to take Ethan. We tried to get Ethan excited about Thomas the week prior to the train ride. Boy it doesn’t take much to get that kid excited. No matter who came to the house, and I mean no matter… we are talking the UPS guy to random solicitors, Ethan would run and get the iPad, and show them a picture of Thomas the Train, and tell them that he was going to ride Thomas on Saturday. Ethan was stoked!
All week he kept asking when, “when do we go ride Thomas?” We kept telling him, “on Saturday you’ll ride Thomas.” Then finally Saturday comes and he goes to meet Thomas. Throughout the day ever once in a while he would stop what he was doing, let out this sigh of relief, and say “Yes, it’s Saturday!” It was like he was realizing and expressing that this was the day he had been waiting for his whole life. He was in heaven.
