Today we visited Strasburg, PA, to visit Thomas the Tank Engine! It was so cool! Thomas is a full sized engine and you can ride him for about 20 minutes-but it was totally worth the drive out there and the cost. We also rode another engine, Old Number 90, who took us through the countryside for about 40 minutes. What a wonderful place to take the kids! Both Nate and Maggie totally loved it and really believed we were on the Island Of Sodor-although we hadn't crossed an ocean that I noticed!!
This is a Thomas made entirely of Legos!
Although we have had horrible amounts of rain lately, the whole time we were there, from 9 am to about 2 pm, it barely rained at all! The one time it did, we hopped on our second train rain and went through the Amish countryside. It was perfect because Nate took a catnap with the rocking of the train and the nice cushy seats-many parents were napping too!
We plan on going back someday soon to also go through the Railroad Train Museum-it takes about 2 1/2 hours to go through and we had lost our steam by then-get it? Lost our steam?? I know, lame joke, but we were on the Island of Sodor all day! Give me a break! LOL!
