When Mateo was about 2, he entered into the boyhood rite of passage that is Thomas the Train. He soon moved onto to other things–such is Mateo's nature. But now that Nico is 2, there has been a renewed interest in trains that has caught on like fire in our house.  We've tried very hard to keep one room in our home toy free, but we relented and the wooden tracks have been in our living room for weeks now in dozens of different configurations. Because of Nico's emerging interest, Mateo has become very involved in the building and maintaining of the tracks. With all this train work going on, we felt it necessary to augment it with a trip to Travel Town. Nico ran down the train aisles yelling "All aboard!" to everyone who passed.
