My son is obsessed with trains. I guess I can blame it on my sister for getting him all those Thomas the Tank Engine books and toys. But there are a lot worse things that a 6 year old can be obsessed with, like something violent.
I wasn't at all surprised when I asked him what kind of party he wanted to have for his 6th birthday that he said he wanted a party about trains. So I ordered a bunch of Thomas the Tank Engine party supplies online for him. I wanted a matching cake but didn't trust myself to handle that too so I searched online for cake decorators with direct tv internet. I found one that was right near our town and called her and told her what I wanted.
The cake along with all the decorations were perfect and I think my son and his friends had a whole lot of fun. I don't know if he'll still be into Thomas the Tank Engine for his next birthday, but if so we'll still have plenty of party favors left over.
