Today we went with some friends to an amusement park where they had a real Thomas train that you could climb aboard and everything.
It seems there are a lot of kids with this obsession. I was a little distressed to see that many of them were older than my son. I thought this would be a passing interest and we could go onto Hello Kitty or something around Christmas time. But it looks like the trains could be here for a while.
An aside, it was great to be out with non law people. Two weeks in school, and its like I forgot I had a life before legal citations.
