What do my boys, hundreds of other kids, and Sheldon Cooper all have in common?

Thomas the Tank Engine

They love trains.

And the train my kids love more than any other is Thomas the Tank Engine. Who can blame them? So for the past three years we’ve made the voyage to Connersville, Indiana for the Day Out With Thomas event. Every time we go, the kids have a blast, and its become one of our favorite traditions.

Day Out With Thomas 2014

The centerpiece of the whole day is getting to ride a real train, but there are enough activities to make whole day of fun. My boys love the bounce house, the toy trains, the craft station, and one child loves getting his picture taken with Sir Topham Hatt. The youngest has not yet come around. Maybe this will be the year!
