Guess who came to town??

Grand Daddy Pope and Grandma Teresa were here for the weekend (of course, Samantha was along too!) We had a great time catching up and taking the train into Charlotte.
Yesterday I went to a playdate with my friend, Evan, and we had a blast playing in the water fountain. The water pressure was a little low, which was better to play with anyways.
We're leaving this morning for a road trip, so we'll do our best to update you with our whereabouts- we'll be in Baltimore for the weekend, woo-hoo, to see cousin Mikayla at her dance recital. We can't wait!

Thomas the Tank Engine

On Wednesday, we took a little road trip up to Tweetsie Railroad near Boone, NC. There was a special visitor at Tweetsie this week and he's one of my favorite things in the whole world- Thomas the Tank Engine!!
Before we rode the train, Mommy and I had to do our time in jail.
Then, I went for a quick trot on a horse.
I don't think I can handle the excitement any longer, Daddy! I must go ride on Thomas now!
This is worth all the waiting...
Even Mommy is pretty excited about riding aboard Thomas' train
I also found a stagecoach to climb into
Here's Daddy's favorite part, meeting Sir Topham Hatt (he's the head of the railway, in case you didn't know)
My favorite past was playing with the trains since they had so many more tracks and engines than I have at home (one day... plus I added Emily to my collection after this trip!)
Daddy and I enjoyed a spin on the carousel
while, Mommy and I went for a wild ride in a hot rod
I wasn't very interested in feeding the goats, just looking at them from a safe distance
Plus, we went panning for gold (and all I got was a little black rock)
Overall, it was a GREAT trip and I hope we can go again next summer!

Where does the time go??

Since pre-school ended last week, Mommy and I have been on the go, so my blog has been neglected again. Here's a recap of our past week:

I had a picnic in my laundry basket
We enjoyed the beautiful weather by swinging in the park
On Tuesday, Mommy and I went to Carowinds amusement park & I had the most fun climbing on these rocks :) But, the water park was pretty cool too, especially the wave pool
To cool down after a hot day in the sun, a grape Popsicle does the trick
Hmmm, hmmm good..
At a play date on Wednesday, I enjoyed feeling the sand between my fingers..
..and riding a mini-roller coaster!
To finish off the week, I pulled together my favorite things for this picture- sunglasses, check, snack trap, check, back-up pair of sunglasses, check, duck bracelet, check..
Are they on correctly?
