Welcome to Prarie Pi. This blog exists to journal and document the memories that our family experiences. Pi is "an amount of type that has been jumbled or thrown together at random." We hope to assemble in words and pictures the daily thoughts and activities that happen in our household. We do this to help those that are distant from us get a glimpse into our days so that the miles that separate us won't keep us apart.

A Day With Thomas

Nacho loves to play with Thomas the Train.
So, I couldn't turn down the opportunity for him to have a close up encounter with his favorite toy.
Just the three little ones, the August heat, the high humidity, about 6,000 other Thomas fans and me.

We rode a passenger car that was built in 1923, bounced in a bouncy house after a long wait in line, drank lots and lots of lemonade, watched a marionette puppet show, shopped for just the perfect Thomas souvenir, and.....

saw Thomas!!!

Trains and 3 year old boys go hand and hand.
After sharing the day with my young ones and watching Nacho's excitement, I don't know if the day was more of a treat for them...........or for me!


  1. Tell N that I wanted to see Thomas, too!

    It is great to see your kid's "dreams" coming true!


  2. Hey - Thomas looks pretty neat!!!! I told Lonna and Bee about your trip and Bee wants to see the pictures too.
