Our Day Out With Thomas 2013

You may remember when we visited Strasburg Rail Road last summer to spend a day with Thomas the Tank Engine and my boys loved it so much that they were begging to back. Well, we recently had the opportunity to visit Strasburg Rail Road again for the Day Out With Thomas: The Go Go Thomas Tour 2013 and they couldn't have been happier.

Thomas rolled into town on June 15th and stayed for nine days giving little engineers and their families the opportunity to spend the day with Thomas and enjoy a nice ride on their favorite engine, meet Sir Topham Hatt, and have some fun with Thomas themed activities including arts & crafts, storytelling and more. Plus Strasburg Rail Road also offered fun extras for kids including a hand-powered Pump Car, riding on the Pint-sized Pufferbelly, a miniature steam train, and "steer" the pint-sized Cranky Cars around a track. Basically, it's a super fun filled day for the kiddos!

We live a little over 30 minutes away from Strasburg Rail Road so the drive wasn't too bad and we left in plenty of time to get in a few fun activities before our ride began. As per the usual, it was pretty busy, but luckily we didn't have to wait in many lines and there was plenty of room on the train when it was time to board.

To say we loved the ride would be an understatement! Of course, the ride is rather short (only about 22 minutes long) but it's definitely worth it to see the look on the kiddos faces when they get to take a ride on their favorite blue engine.

Overall, we had a fantastic day! The boys got some super cool Thomas temporary tattoos, got to pick out some fun souvenirs, and of course they had a lot of fun on the bonus rides offered at Strasburg.

For those of you who live in the area, Thomas will be back in September and November if you'd like to check it out! And for those of you who aren't in the area... Don't worry! The Day Out With Thomas: The Go Go Thomas Tour 2013 is sure to be coming to a town near you as well! You can check out the tour schedule here:

How fun I have never heard of this! My little guy is a big Thomas fan, this would be so awesome he would love this. Very glad I saw this we may have to plan a trip, looks like he will be coming to Minnesota in August!

My son loved Thomas! We went to see Thomas the train in Strasburg twice! Of course we also walk away with several things from the tent!
