If you have a train lover like I do, then you need to take them to a Day Out With Thomas. We've been to two over the past few years and the kids absolutely love it.
There are times I get really behind with blogging, so you may not be surprised to hear that these photographs were taken at the Orange Empire Railway Station last year, which in itself is a great train museum to take your little train lover, but I happen to know that later this year Thomas will be making another appearance.
You can find the full Day Out With Thomas schedule on hitentertainment.com (including links to the Canada and UK websites too).
Tickets for a Day Out With Thomas can be purchased from TicketWeb.
I have a tip for you too.
On our way to the Orange Empire Railway Museum, it was time for lunch and we happened to pass the Chinese Bistro restaurant, which is an old train turned into a dining car. We immediately swung the car around and had lunch. The food was pretty darn good, the service was great (it helps that there was only one other family dining at the same time) and the kids loved that they were dining in a train.
Chinese Bistro: 28490 Hwy 74, Sun City CA 92585
It's well worth it if you are planning a fun train day like we were.
