LET'S GO SEE THE TRAINS!

Are your kids obsessed with Thomas the Tank Engine? My kids loved trains when they were little, and our house was lined with tiny wooden railroad tracks leading from their bedroom to the kitchen. The fascination was real. You and your kids can learn all about trains at this FREE event coming to the Union Depot in St. Paul in June.
