Our move back to California happened very quickly and with only five days notice. Within a week we had found temporary housing, filled both our cars with the bare necessities, and driven back to sunny So Cal. For the last four months our family has been living with what we could pack into two cars. And trust me, it isn't much. Finally Gavin and I made a trip back to Utah to pack up what was left behind and drive it all here to our new home in California. While there, I made sure to take Gavin to the much anticipated Day Out With Thomas, which happens only once a year in Utah.
This consisted of a train engine completely covered with an exact replica of Thomas the Tank Engine. (See the next paragraph for why there is no picture of this). Then board Thomas' train for a short jaunt, play with Thomas train sets, watch Thomas movies, listen to music, play games, and get your picture taken several dozen times and you have Day Out With Thomas. Gavin was practically a celebrity too since he wore his Thomas Halloween costume to the event. EVERYWHERE we went someone was commenting about the awesome/cute/adorable/insert another adjetive costume. He was a rock star that day and by far the cutest Thomas fan around.
Unfortunately, 98% of the photos I took became corrupted on my memory card and only download as 'blanks'. These four shots are about all I have from the day. I am still trying to come to terms with this loss, since there were many adorable photos of the day, but I am just grateful to have these four. So just envision a beaming smiley boy, lots of trains, and family sharing the day with us.
