One of the greatest joys of having a little boy is their passion about everything that moves. I don’t know what it is but both my boys have always loved trains. We had our very first Day Out with Thomas about 9 years ago. I went digging last night into my albums to find these two precious pictures of Eph. Oh goodness, he was so small. That was his very first trip to take a ride on Thomas and we had such an amazing day. I can’t wait to take Ezra next month.
I love that the Day Out with Thomas is a quick ride in the train. It’s the perfect amount of sitting for the average preschooler, plus the kids can participate in all the other fun activities around the station. Sir Topham Hatt will be around for selfies. There is also a large tented area for tattoos, free play and crafts. If you child doesn’t already have every Thomas the Train item imaginable, there is a large merchandise tent to help Mama spend her money.
(OMG, isn’t that the cutest picture of my husband and son from 2007? My husband looks so YOUNG!)
