A Day Out with Thomas!

One of Hudson's birthday presents from us was tickets to go on a Day Out with Thomas! Last Saturday, we made the trip to Nashville for the big event. What usually takes a little over two hours to get to Nashville ended up taking us over four! There was a bad wreck earlier that morning that left traffic on the interstate at a stand still for hours. We ended up having to take a detour so that made the trip even longer. Hudson was a trooper and was so excited when we got to where we were going. Luckily, we hadn't told him where we were going so when we pulled up and he saw Thomas stuff everywhere he finally figured it out! He loves trains and since our trip to Colorado he has been asking to ride a train again. He was sad to leave Thomas but he got to buy a new train for his train table in the gift shop so that made him happy.

He was so excited to be on the train!

It was hard to get him to stop looking at Thomas long enough to get a picture.

He is getting to be such a big boy!
We are enjoying every second with our three year old!

Surprise Party!

Labor Day weekend we went to St. Louis to visit Todd's family. Todd and I had planned a little birthday party for Hudson while we were there since they didn't get to come for his party here. What Todd didn't know was that we were planning a little surprise for him. His 30th birthday is coming up (September 21 to be exact!) so we decided to surprise him for the Big 3-0! He just thought we were having a party at some friends for Hudson so he was surprised when it turned out to be for him too. We had a great time with lots of family and friends in St. Louis celebrating these boys.

Happy birthday to two of my favorite boys!

I even got him an Alabama cake for the surprise!

I was glad we were able to pull off the surprise. I am sure he will get me back one day. Good thing I have a few years until my 30th:)
