The day before I went into labor, we took Oliver to the Tennessee Central Railway Museum. It was free (praise hands!) and the attendees could see trains, toys, collectibles, and all things railway. I was sold.
These trains are still used! They didn't go out on this particular day, though. We just got to go inside and take a look. In September, Thomas and Friends comes to town at this location. One employee said it's a madhouse and he's already dreading it. Haha!
This one had a sitting area above the train and it was all windows! So cool. And of course, I put O in a Thomas the Train shirt. Duh.
The museum was small and a bit over Oliver's head, but still neat.
This was a great set-up! Oliver was amazed. Also, it was so cute to see all the old men with their trains. I had a vision of Oliver maybe doing that one day. Ha!
It was a chilly day but a fun one. And little did we know...in less than 48 hours, we'd meet our little girl.
