Day Out With Thomas

Jacob’s favorite thing to play with is his collection of Thomas trains so it came as no surprise that he LOVED the trip to Union, IL for Day Out With Thomas. Our family had a great time and the weather was beautiful. Want to see if the tour is headed towards you? Go here to view the 2011 Thomas Leader of The Track Tour schedule.

Wordless Wednesday: Storytime with Sir Topham Hatt

Jacob and Sir Topham Hatt

Jacob loves Thomas so when Thomas and Friends Live was in town I was disappointed we couldn’t go but we heard Sir Topham Hatt would be leading storytime at a local library so we just had to go to that. He’s also very excited to go to Day Out With Thomas this summer. I’m one of the Day Out With Thomas Blog Reporters so I will share more about that event in the months to come.
