On Friday, Mike and I took Bo to the Day Out with Thomas event that was held at the Illinois Railway Museum in Union, IL. Mike and I were both disappointed that Thomas was not a real steam engine. However, Bo didn’t seem to notice. He was pretty excited, but refused to let me take his photo by Thomas.
Bo gave his ticket to the conductor and here he is holding his ticket as we wait for the train to depart.
Looking out the train window. The car we were on was from the early 1900′s.
Excited that we’re moving!
The only picture of all three of us from our outing. It was a VERY warm day — in the low 90′s and we were all quite hot.
Mike and Bo pose with Sir Topham Hat. Bo wasn’t sure what to make of him.
Overall, it was a very fun trip and I’m glad we took him. I’m also very glad we did not take the girls – it was too hot and crowded. We were able to see numerous restored trains and we bought Bo the special “Day Out with Thomas” train as a souvenir. A good time was had by all and I highly recommend this event for the parents of any Thomas enthusiast. It was very well done. And did you know Ringo Starr owns Thomas??
