All Aboard!

We got rained out on Saturday but Sunday was a different story! The weather was gorgeous so we took advantage and headed out to the Strasburg Railroad. The entire ride there, E was talking about the trains and saying “All Aboard! Choo choo!”. In other words, being absolutely adorable.

We got there just in time for the 1 o’clock train. He practically jumped on the train when it was our turn. There was so much for him to look at and he could barely get the words out of his mouth. Then he heard it “All Aboard!”. He looked at me and said “Mr. Conductor said that. Let’s go!”.

And off we went!

Forty-five minutes later, we pulled back into the station and our train ride was over.

We walked around the station and let E explore. Of course, he spotted Thomas right away!

The highlight of the trip? Taking a sneak peek at the “real” Thomas. He was in the engine shed getting a fresh coat of paint for his upcoming train rides in June! It took all he had in him not to run past the ropes and go give Thomas a hug.

He is going to flip when he sees his birthday present…tickets to A Day Out with Thomas!

  1. Looks like fun. I've been toying with the idea of taking the boys out there for a train ride. Did you go into the museum? Is there a lot to do there without going into the museum?
