We had a fantastic trip planned for Tweetsie RR this year. Thomas the Train was in the Smokies for a visit so we planned a trip with all our buddies and headed out to see him. Lucas loves Thomas, much more than Hunter did at the same age so this was going to be great, Right? Nope, it was a rainy, dreary and really cold mess!! Under normal circumstances we would have just canned the trip from the start but our group of friends all had the day off from work, a very rare occasion. There isn't much to say other than we did it, or we did it the best we could. The kids didn't seem to mind the rain and in between downpours we did manage to ride a few rides. We never made it up the chairlift, that event will have to happen another day. I felt like the day was a disaster, but the kids really did have a good time and we all got to hang out for a nice, dry lunch afterwards.
