The Mother Ship

That yellow Number 1 can only mean one thing: Thomas. Thomas left the Island of Sodor last week and visited the Tennessee Valley Railroad in Chattanooga. And so did we, along with Mindy and Henry's friend Ryan and his parents. As an indication of his excitement, Henry refused to nap in the car on the way there, instead singing a made-up song apparently called "I can't wait."

Like in the first intermission of Ms. Pac-Man: "They meet."

Henry got ink done.

What better way for Mindy to spend her birthday-eve than with Thomas and his flocks of admirers? This was taken right before boarding Thomas for an actual train ride....

Nah, he wasn't excited about this experience at all.

Pondering a world without talking blue steam engines.

Henry and Ryan jockey for position. The only negative about riding on Thomas is that you can't see Thomas when you look out the window.
