After swimming, Dan
FINALLY the morning of Thomas!
I insisted on getting the most of our hotel and made sure we got the most out of the continental breakfast. This of course, made us late. Since we had two cars, Sir Talks A Lot rode with Dan, while I kept Sleepy Pants Audrey with me. Just as we're about to pull onto the highway, Dan makes some weird turn to get around me so he could lead the way. He failed to notice the cop that was driving right behind him. OOPS! That provided some entertainment for a wide eyed 4 year old in the backseat who now thinks you can go to jail for cutting in line.
It poured on our way up. Things weren't looking good.
We barely made it to Thomas in time. I swear we pulled into our impossible to find parking spots at 11:27 and our train ride was leaving at 11:30. Oh and did I mention I lost our original train tickets, so we still had to go to the will call window to claim our reissued tix with one minute to spare.
It worked out in our favor actually because we were brought right on board, got great seats and the train left almost instantly.
They played chase for a while
And then we fill our faces with more ice cream
Before heading home, we took a slight detour to visit the Manor where we'll be spending our 10th anniversary. There was a wedding going on so we couldn't see everything but It Is Beautiful!
I can't wait to see it on a sunny fall day.
The hot tub overlooking the mountains is screaming our name.
Who wouldn't relax in a room like this?
or read a book and take a nap on this lawn, wish I could show you the view... believe me, there are mountains behind those evil rain clouds
We started our trek home but 5 minutes into it, we both decided we were too tired to make the drive, so we found another hotel to park it for the night.
The kids were clearly devastated.
The boys brought subs back, we ate, watched a marathon of Dirty Jobs and were all asleep by 8pm.
Sunday gave us an amazing day to drive home. We stopped for breakfast, then MORE ice cream, some scenic stops and finally home by 1:30.
