Day out with Thomas in Nashville

Day out with Thomas in Nashville

September 12, 2017 in Motherhood - No Comments

On Sunday morning, we made our way into Nashville for Day Out With Thomas. My Mom and I have been planning this for a few months, and knew that it was going to be a big hit because Grayson is so into Thomas right now.

We bought our tickets for the 10:00 AM ride, and they recommended getting there about an hour early, but we didn’t. I’d say that we go there about 30-35 minutes early? Which, if you ask me, is the perfect time. You’re able to quickly get in line, and then when the ride after yours starts, you will have time to wander around to all of the different activities. When we arrived, it was almost boarding time so we go in line. They do the lines based on what car you’re in–we were in car 2. The closer you are to Thomas, the sooner you’re able to line up for pictures with him.

The train ride itself was relatively quick. We rode backwards for about 10 minutes, and then headed forwards to pull into where we left from. Unless you’re able to see Thomas beforehand, your kids won’t realize that he’s pulling the train. Grayson didn’t mind that part, he was excited to look out the window and see all of the other trains that were on the tracks. We were also able to see a great view of Downtown, including the Nissan stadium, during our train ride.

Once you exit the train, you’re directed to head towards Thomas. They tell you that the only way to get photos with Thomas is to use their professional photographers they have on site, and pay for the photos later. I saw a lot of other people cheating though, so I did too. And, if we’re being honest, the photographers were kneeling and shooting up…which is the least flattering angle for anyone ever. Thankfully, I was able to sneak a few shots of my own. Grayson did NOT want to look away from Thomas to look at me though. He was absolutely mesmerized once he saw him. At first, you could tell that he was a little bit confused. That quickly turned to excitement. Seeing the joy on his face when he saw Thomas was completely worth it!

When you first enter the event, they hand you a piece of paper with five locations on it. Each location will give you a stamp and when you collect all four stamps you get a price. (Spoiler Alert: The price is three bracelets) The four locations are: Temporary Tattoo Station, Viewing Area, Imagination Station, Knapford Station (where you can take photos with Sir Topham Hat), and the Gift Shop. We waited until after our ride was finished to visit all of the stations. They also have three giant bounce houses, mini golf and corn hole, and a petting zoo.

The Imagination Station was Grayson’s favorite because there are toys to play with. We spent most of our time there, letting him play with the other kids and run around. I’m so thankful that it was a nice day outside, because if not we would have been miserable the entire time. I love that they do this during the late Summer and Early Fall months.

Of course, they make you exit through the Gift Shop! Grayson picked out some Thomas Mega Blocks and a Drawstring Backpack.

We had such a fun time! If your kids are into Thomas, definitely look into taking them when it comes to your town, because they will have an absolute blast. We’ll probably be back next year, if Grayson continues to love Thomas as much as he does now.

Have any of y’all been to Day Out With Thomas?

  • AD When Grayson was diagnosed with #hearingloss, one of my main concerns was being able to afford everything that he needed to maximize his quality of life. Hearing Evaluations, Speech Therapies, and any Devices that he needs aren't covered by insurance. If you know someone with a disability, have one yourself, or have a child with one, you know that it can become expensive FAST, and extremely overwhelming. When I heard about ABLEnow®, I was really 
excited to partner with them. ABLEnow accounts help eligible individuals (even children!) pay for expenses related to their disabilities. This includes everything from health and wellness, to housing, to education and so much more! Being able to help save for my son's financial future gives me such peace of mind. You can click the link in my bio to find out if you or someone you know is eligible to sign up for an ABLEnow account, and head to http://bit.ly/2ZrAozy for a chance to win a $500 contribution to an ABLEnow account! @ABLEnowVA #ABLEnow •

  • OH HEY. Remember me? 😂
I can’t even begin to describe the last two ish weeks that we’ve had over here. 
First of all, remember when I thought Grayson had pink eye? It turned out to just be a virus, that he also passed along to Sawyer, and they’re both still not over it. It’s gross, but I think we’re at the tail end of it. *Hopefully* 
Also, I got a new job. It’s part time and from home and I think it is going to be great for us. Does that mean you’ll see less of me? Nah. Probably the same or more since it’s I’ll be sitting at my desk way more often day to day. 
I also got hit with some severe dental pain on Friday, which was FUN to have to deal with over a holiday weekend, let me tell you. Thankfully, I’m finally on the mend and pain free 🙌🏻
I can’t wait to settle back into this space. 
Tell me something good that’s happened to you this week! I want to hear all of the things. •

Philly Cheesesteak Sloppy Joe Stuffed Sweet Potatoes. Say that three times fast. I will be throwing this really quick recipe up on the blog later tonight. I made it last week and y’all were really excited to try it. Having two small children, I always try to make meals fun, versatile, and full of flavor so that they will enjoy it. I also love making recipes that are able to be tweaked to make it comfortable for your family. You CAN make your family healthy and delicious meals at home and it doesn’t have to take hours or require a ton of effort! 
SWIPE—>> to see an example of how I serve this meal to each of my kids. And keep your eyes peeled for this to hit the blog. •

  • I’m so excited to share this Better Than Takeout Beef Fried Rice with you guys. (You can totally sub the beef for chicken, pork, or shrimp!) We add a little extra veggies and an extra egg because Grayson like a lot of egg in his “egg rice” 😂 I also included a Homemade Yum Yum Sauce recipe because...do I even need a reason? You can find this recipe by clicking the link in my bio! •
