Our summer trip to the mountains

A day out with Thomas the Train.....

We took a summer weekend trip to Tweetsie Railroad and Blowing Rock in June of this year. Noah stayed at home with Gommy, so we missed him very much! Since Bryson is so into Thomas right now, we thought seeing the "real" Thomas at Tweetise would be quite the treat for him! I have never seen a bigger smile on a child's face than when Doug was holding Bryson up on his shoulders and he saw Thomas coming down the railroad tracks! He was speechless, and that does not often occur with Bryson! The boys had the best time during our ride on Thomas the Train. Then we spent the rest of the day exploring Tweetsie.

The next day we went into the town of Blowing Rock for lunch and also went to the actual Blowing Rock. What beautiful views there are at Blowing Rock. The boys, of course, had so much fun climbing around the blowing rock. It is always fascinating to me to do experience these "firsts" with the boys. They can give you a whole new perspective on life!
