Labor Day Weekend - Full of Excitement

What a wonderfull weekned! We were able to spend time in Ohio with our cousins. It was fair week and several of them showed pigs. They did great. We are so proud of them. It was also a great time to hang out with them and chill. We love being there. It is always a nice getaway.

While we were there, my aunt Nancy mentioned that they went to see Thomas the train when the kids were little. Well, what do you know, on Sunday was Thomas Days in Lebenon, Ohio so we decided to go. Tegegn has been all about "choo choo" lately so it was perfect. He LOVED it. The best moment was when he saw Thomas for the first time. He was strapped in his stroller and was pointing and trying to jump up and down. It was priceless.

I would have never known that there was a real Thomas train. What a great thing for kids!

A day out with Thomas - 2009. Mommy and Tegegn posing for a picture.

Tegegn loves his daddy -so much so he put his arm around him.

Thomas and more Thomas....choo, choo!
Tegegn looks thrilled! We had to buy something to add to our game room at home and a flag was chosen...

Today marks a special day in the Ponsler household...it is Chris's birthday. I am so glad that we are able to spend it together as a family of three. He also started a new job today...what a big day.

Looks like Tegegn loved Thomas! We have been going with my nephew for the last 4 years or so. Grayson LOVES Thomas and had a great time this year. We look forward to taking Abram next year!

Happy 30th to Chris!! We can't wait to see you guys this weekend. Looks like you guys had a TON of fun! Tegegn needs to come over to our house as the train across the road is always going it seems...Elli seems to enjoy the train these days too. It's fun to see what Tegegn is up to, because a lot of the time Elli's into the same thing. So fun!
