Choooo Choooo!

We are going to the Toy Train Show this weekend, and if you are in the DC area, you should come too!!  There should be loads of model trains, with steam and real honks and train noise and complicated tracks.  And there will be a real train the kiddies can ride.  And it's only $7 per adult, and kids are free.  It really can't get better!
