Thomas is Here and he’s Brought a Friend! @DOWT @OERM #DayOutWithThomas #OrangeEmpireRail

unnamed-48 The first weekend of Thomas at the Orange Empire Railway Museum is complete but there’s still time to get tickets for next weekend! This time he’s joined by his good buddy Percy so you can ride on him as well! (Percy requires additional ticket and is not included in the price of Thomas ride). image5 It was a beautiful day in Perris yesterday at the Orange Empire Railway Museum and my kids got to see and ride Thomas. I feel like at almost eight years old, sadly my oldest has started to outgrow Thomas. That’s the beauty of siblings though! This was Jax’s first time and he’s hooked! In fact he’s playing with Reed’s old Thomas trains ride now and watching a TV and saying “choo choo.” At almost two it’s the perfect age to fall in love with Thomas! His big brother loved showing him the ropes! IMG_0906 Paige is six and even though she’s a girl, she has always loved Thomas too! IMG_0908 There is so much more to do at Day out with Thomas than just riding Thomas, even though that is the highlight! There are stations on a map the kids can visit and get a stamp and at the end of the day they get a Thomas souvenir to commemorate the day if they visited all stations! There were a few new things this year that the kids loved like the train bounce house. My kids can bounce all day! image6 They also loved goofing off and taking fun pictures. image2image1 image4 Thomas has always been magic to my kids and I’m thrilled that my youngest got to enjoy it for the first time and that we now have another train lover in the family! It’s just an all around fun family day that brings everyone together.IMG_0907If you haven’t experienced Day out with Thomas for yourself, it’s an experience not to be missed!
