Y’all…my toddler LOVES Thomas! He loves to watch the shows, play with the trains (ahem…”engines”) and watch for “rains” everywhere we go. So, when I received an email asking if I’d like to be a “Mommy Reporter” for Day Out with Thomas, I didn’t have to think twice about it. YES! The only problem is…I can’t go! Which means I can’t take my toddler. Honestly, it broke my heart to miss it. BUT…..
There is one consolation.
I have two nephews who love Thomas every bit as much as my toddler. (Okay…more!) And, it turns out that they can go in our place! Which brings me to the guest blogger I mentioned recently…my sister!! You’re going to love her, and her family is going to love being part of the Mystery on the Rails Tour 2012.
Let me tell you a bit more about it. Here’s some info from Thomas’ website:
Thomas the Tank Engine™ is pulling out of the station for Day Out With Thomas™: Mystery On The Rails Tour 2012. Presented by HIT Entertainment and sponsored by MEGA Brands, a leading toy company, Day Out with Thomas is a fun-filled and exciting way for children and adults to enter the world of Thomas & Friends. Day Out With Thomas provides an opportunity for kids to take a ride on a 15-ton replica of Thomas and have their pictures taken with Sir Topham Hatt, the controller of Thomas’ railway. The tour provides a unique, interactive family experience at every station, offering a variety of entertaining activities that reflect the local flavor of each stop. Different forms of entertainment – from petting zoos, miniature golf, and bounce houses to face-painting and magic shows – make each Day Out With Thomas event special. In addition, every location has a Thomas & Friends Imagination Station where you can Build with Mega Bloks® and participate in other Thomas-themed activities including stamps, temporary tattoos, hands-on arts and crafts, and a Thomas storytelling and video viewing area.
