Editor's event review

The photos below were taken at Conway Scenic Railroad for the 2017 Day Out With Thomas event. At the time, my kiddos were three and a half and one and a half (but I think any age would love attending this event). They both enjoyed all of the kid-friendly activities, seeing their favorite blue (and green!) train, and loved the train ride itself. Needless to say, my family had so much fun that we're planning on going again this year. Choo choo, we hope to see you there!
