We won tickets to A Day out with Thomas. After collecting our tickets our first stop was pictures with Sir Topham Hat. My kids were creeped out by him, but both gave him a high five!
Christian loved the activity tent and went straight for the train tables!!! There were five or six tables set up here. They also had magnetic fishing and temporary tattoos.
Katie stopped for a picture with Angelina Ballerina and Thomas…not Barney. I’m supposed to tell you that.

We were getting ready to leave the station and they were so excited!!! This is just after Christian had a mini meltdown! Thankfully, the “toot toot” from Thomas’ whistle brought him right out of it!
They couldn’t believe they got their pictures made with “the real Thomas”. I heard this is cool or this is awesome about 100 times!
They were checking the coal supply on this mini train!
This was an amazing day for our family! Since we live in historic Metamora, IN and A Day out with Thomas was in Connersville we had only a 18 mile trip to see Thomas!!! Some of the volunteers told us there were people there from Florida, Michigan, and Iowa!!!
All of the on site activities were included with the cost of the ticket (we won ours though). This was a VERY pleasant surprise because there was a lot to do. Katie jumped in the bouncy house, but Christian didn’t. He opted for more time with the train tables. They also had a barrel train, a balloon artist on stilts, a magic act (we got there too late), and a movie tent. We missed/opted out of several of the activities. I didn’t want to overstimulate the kids and cause a meltdown so we followed their cues and not our own desire for them to do everything. We also took advantage of the free shuttle to and from the event. Katie thought riding on the school bus was the coolest thing ever. Mike and I were working on a 5 year plan that includes living on a bus!
