Fun On The Grace Thomas Train Ride

Grace Thomas Train Ride

Last week, Avery and I took a ride on the train!  This wasn’t just any train ride, though. This was the Grace Thomas, American Girl, Girl of the Year, Train Ride!!! The train took us through the scenic Blackstone Valley, and we were entertained from start to finish! Grace Thomas Train Ride - Blackstone Valley - American Girl Doll

We arrived at the depot, and enjoyed a trio of musicians playing lovely French music. There were photo opps, and desserts (including decorate your own options) by Sweet Indulgence.

I spent the first ten minutes of the ride changing Avery’s doll out of her old clothes and into her new American Girl t-shirt.

We learned to count in French, sang French songs, and played bingo! (Shockingly, EVERYONE won!)

We attended the event with friends and both girls had an incredible time! The smiles never left their faces until it was time to go home. Blackstone Valley Tourism - Grace Thomas Train Ride
