Thomas Day at Puffing Billy

On Saturday we went to Thomas Day at Puffing Billy. It was GREAT!
I'm having trouble getting these pictures in the order I want - I can't seem to move them about today, so they're just coming as they do.
Here is David enjoying the Puffing Billy steam engine ride through the beautiful Dandenongs. This was before we boarded, watching Puffing Billy getting up steam, them shunting our carriages into place. David is a bit obsessed with steam engines at the moment (his favourite DVD is the made-for-adults "Steam Trains of Australia"), so this was a highlight.
Looking up the train. I enjoyed the ride so much. I knew David would like it but was surprised at how much I did too.
David with The Real Troublesome Trucks. (And The Real Thomas in the background.)
Here is David with Grandma, Grandpa and "Pudda Billy". And here discovering the joys of bouncing castles!
We went for a ride on The Real Green Bulgy Bus.
And saw The Real Trevor (one of David's favourites).
And, of course, saw The Real Thomas!
What a great day!
