When friends told us about Day Out With Thomas, I knew it would be one of those things that we would all love. The kids would go bananas and Dave and I would get a kick out of their going bananas. So we bought tickets and went!
Isaac generally has a very, very strong reaction to Thomas. When he first received a gift that was Thomas themed (at a year and a half) he trembled (trembled!) as he opened the gift. I had very high expectations for him. I couldn't wait to see his reaction to seeing a train-sized Thomas, and I knew if he acted indifferent about the whole thing, I would be a little disappointed.
Isaac did not disappoint:
Worth every penny, I tell you.
He had the same reaction the guy dressed up as Sir Topham Hat. He laughed and hid his face and laughed some more and called out "hat! hat!" and hid his face again. sooooo funny.
We took a short train ride in one of the coaches Thomas pulls.
After our ride, we saw some of the other attractions and then hung out at these (unused) tracks.
Then, when we got to the hotel, Isaac spent about an hour on the (unplugged) phone telling Sir Topham Hat all about his day. He would run to the phone, pick up, say "hello?" and then say a whole lot of mumbly jargon with "hat! hat!" thrown in. Then he'd hang up, run away, and run right back to do it again. He takes these things very seriously.
Thanks Thomas. We loved it. You sure know how to show our family a good time.
