A Day Out With Thomas – 2009 edition

Friday we went to see “A Day Out with Thomas.” We went with my mom, my cousin Shannon and her son Michael (5), and my niece and nephew, Sophia (5) and Will (7). We all went last year, too (except Colin of course, since he wasn’t born yet!), so it’s kind of fun to look back at the pictures from a year ago. Of course, I was once again the crazy camera lady, so this post is very photo heavy. It doesn’t seem like I have as many smiles in the photos from this year, but I think that’s just because it was so stinkin’ hot this year (95+ degrees), and not because the kids didn’t have fun.


We started out on the mini train:





Then we were off to the pony rides.

Zoe checked out the bounce house while the other kids went inside some sort of cave thing.

Colin was mostly just along for the ride. I’m sure he’ll have a lot more fun next year.

We saved the train ride for last, and the kids anxioulsy awaited Thomas’s arrival:

    • Oh, he definitely will be. Zoe was 1 1/2 last year and she had a good time (not as much fun as she had this year, but still a good time). If you do go, remind me to tell you about our secret caboose train. It’s a longer ride for less money ($8 instead of $18), and all of the other activities are included. You don’t actually ride on Thomas, but you pass him twice, which I think the kids actually liked better.

  1. We hung with Thomas for the day last month but ours didn’t have a mini train, pony rides nor a petting zoo. Yours was way better, except for the heat. Glad everyone had a great time.
