Day Out with Thomas.
The Thrill of The Ride Tour 2014.
Thomas the Tank Engine has been a part of my life since I can remember. In fact, the first time I watched it I was 4 years-old and it was one of the shows that helped me learn English. As I got older, I had fond memories of days where I wasn’t feeling well and my parents let me stay home with plenty of fluids, blankets and pillows and awesome TV. It was shows like Thomas the Tank Engine that helped brighten my days.
Gabby grew up watching Thomas the Tank Engine and now Mimi does too. It is amazing that these lovable characters and story can transcend time and three generations! These days, we often watch Thomas the Tank Engine bright and early in the morning and sing along to the theme song REALLY LOUD!
A Day of Fun!
Next month, we are headed to St. Thomas to take in the Day Out with Thomas: The Thrill of the Ride Tour 2014! It is going to be super fun and we are thrilled to go see Thomas in the flesh, err, I mean steel!
Day Out with Thomas: The Thrill of the Ride Tour 2014 is a fun-filled event where you and your little engineers get the chance to take a 25 minute ride on Thomas the Tank Engine, star of the popular Thomas & Friends series.
