Did you know Thomas the Train goes on tour? Well he does, and he comes to the small town right next to ours, Snoqualmie, WA. At first I didn't have much interest taking my two year old, I really didn't think he would get it. We have Thomas the Train books and have read them many many times, which he loves, but an actual event, I thought would just be a bit overwhelming and crowded for him. He has this way of tugging at my heart strings though. We saw Thomas go past one day while we were out in town, My husband got out with C and they waved to all the passengers on the trains. He was sold. Absolutely sold. All I heard about for a week straight was how much he wanted to ride the train. So here I am, hiring a babysitter for my youngest and taking C to ride Thomas.
Day out with Thomas Fair
There were so many activities to enjoy, bouncy houses, pictures with Thomas, train tables GALORE, a fake tattoo tent, a gift shop, and all the food you could imagine. We walked around and explored everything they had to offer. It is held at the Northwest Train Museum in Snoqualmie, WA so there are a lot of old trains to look at and explore. C had a blast. Of course I had a blast too, a mommy and C date, watching the joy on his face, and documenting it all. Not to mention the view from the train, I had no idea it was so pretty! I highly recommend checking it out during the summer while it is running.
