For those of you who have boys, even if they are older than 2,
you definitely know you that guy is: Thomas the Tank Engine, that's who! (Ugh- didn't mean to rhyme there).
This past summer we took Nicholas on his first train ride in Scotland. He loved it. Every second of it. Scot Rail was fabulous.
We decked him out in his new Thomas shirt, recruited Anna, our adorable neighbor and family friend, and boarded at our local station in Brora. We also brought a "Percy" (that's the green train in the pictures) with us.
|Anna and Nicholas crossing the train bridge, ready to ride.|
|Ooooh, I think Percy will go here on this bench.|
|"We're waiting for the train!"|
|The old run-down Brora Station. It adds character, I think.|
|Yeah, character. I'll stick with that.|
|Here it comes!!!|
|Checkin' out the fields with Momma|

for about 10 minutes at a stop over in Lairg.
Scot Rail you are wonderful.
(look at Nick carefully- he, he, he).
|This is AWESOME mom|
|Thomas Cookie- nom...nom...nom...|
Special note: These cookies were totally inspired by Whipped Baker. I adored them so much, and knew my son would too, and just had to try to make them myself.
