This event was in Union, Illinois at the Illinois Railway Museum and, if you're ever in the neighborhood it's definately worth the detour. It's an amazing place with over 100 years of America's railroad history. The Thomas event was great, the kids had so much fun and really were a pleasure to be with! It was like a little miracle. Sam played mini golf and is really showing some aptitude for the sport. He totally smoked the kid in front of him (who's Dad was obviously a golfer and was really perterbed that his kid was averaging 10 strokes per hole). We rode an antique trolly just like the one on Mr. Roger's and saw tons of big old trains. The hilight of the day was a 20 minute ride on Thomas. Lilly spit her binkie out the window but the rest of the $2.50/minute ride was uneventful and relaxing. If you've got a 4-5 year old, don't miss this event!
