They're two, they're four, they're six, they're eight, they're heading to Kentucky in 2024!

When my son Rollins was younger, he LOVED trains. Obsessed would be a better word to describe how he spent his days playing, watching, and drawing all things Thomas & Friends. We sang all of the songs and read all of the books with valuable lessons of friendship, hard work, and positivity. Our living room coffee table was his train track table that's how much he loved trains.

From the old school stop motion version with George Carlin as the conductor to the newer computer-animated movies, he knew every story in the Thomas universe. His second birthday party was Thomas themed and I made giant cutouts that looked like his favorite locomotives. So, his uncle Adam gave him tickets to meet the famous blue train at A Day Out With Thomas.

We had the best day ever making crafts, dancing, enjoying the magic show, playing games, and when the big blue star of the show rolled into the station, his little body jumped up and down unable to contain his excitement. Full disclosure, he was VERY skeptical of Sir Topham Hatt, but we got a hilarious photo out of it.

Rollins waved to Thomas talking to him the whole way to the train car where we enjoyed a ride click-clacking down the track until returning to the station to snag a souvenir. Creating memories that will last a lifetime!
