A Day Out With Thomas--Picture Overload

Trains, balloon animals and face tattoos...does it get any better than that? It does if all these things are a part of A Day Out With Thomas! Our family had the awesome opportunity to go to A Day Out With Thomas and it was the most fun my kids have ever had. 
We started our day by surprising the kiddles with conductor hats that I had embellished the night before. 
I used Thomas fabric remnant to spruce up these hats that I got a Zurcher's for $1.39
We loaded the family into the minivan and played a Thomas DVD for the kids. They had no idea where we were going or what we had planned for the day. After a gorgeous scenic drive up to Heber City we arrived at the train station. The kids took one look at the Day Out With Thomas banners and lost their minds. To be honest...I was so excited I could have puked glitter.

And the fun begins!

 We got our wristbands and headed for the train. Did I mention it was a full-sized Thomas train complete with men in conductor uniforms? 
How cool is that?!?!

The kids had never ridden a train so I was relieved that it was a slow, relaxing ride. Our daughter has sensory processing issues and I was afraid that she would be overloaded, but she did surprisingly well. Even the baby enjoyed himself.

Even Philly was sporting a Thomas shirt

At the end of the ride the children were given Junior Conductor certificates. How cute is that? 

I had originally thought is was just a train ride that we had paid for, but there was also a great little carnival for the kids complete with balloon animals, temporary tattoos, and an Imagination Station where they were able to play with train tables, blocks, and stamps. There was also a miniature golf course, but we chose to skip that activity for fear of a nuclear melt down. If you knew our kids you would understand. 

Baby did NOT appreciate the cold sponge that came with the tattoo

We got a map that we had to have stamped at different areas and at the ends the kids got a little prize

I may have to invest in those train track stamps...

After waiting in a very long line they also got to meet Sir Topham Hat? He is much taller in person than he is on TV. Hmmm...
My kids roll with celebrities.

Overall it was an incredible day and the kids could not have been happier. The tickets were well worth the money and the drive and I can't wait to go again next year.
