I hope some of you out there will enjoy this. My son has a Thomas the Train obsession. When he can’t find Thomas the Train, any train will do. On drives to my parents house we pass train tracks maybe 4 or 5 times. He remembers them all. Anyway, it was a nice fall day and we were taking a trip to the Philadelphia Zoo. It’s usually great. We have a membership, and we only live like 10 minutes away, so you can’t beat it. The Zoo has a nice train ride for kids. My husband keep telling George we were going to go ride the train. That was not a good idea. Once he heard the word train, that was all he wanted to do. We looked at the monkeys, the Tigers, the soon-to-be-gone Elephants and he wanted nothing to do with it. To my surprise he remembered where the Train ride was and keep walking in the direction of the train. So we gave in and took a train ride. He erupted in tears when we got off . To make a long story short, he rode the train 3 times and cried about how he wanted to go back to the train the whole time we were there. You gotta love it!

Here is the visual:
