Following the news that Toys “R” Us was going out of business, Alan and I decided to make one last visit to the Mayfield Heights store – where Alan first fell in love with trains during his toddler years.
After we walked up and down all the aisles for one last memory, Alan picked out a Lego and a Hot Wheels car mat. Then we took the photo above at the same train aisle where we used to spend many Saturdays playing with the Thomas the Train display table (see: http://alans-story.grilledshane.com/?p=57).
The Thomas display might no longer be around, but Alan did find an Imaginarium Train Table display with a whole train city that still captured his attention. Alan told me he wished he was small enough to ride in the steam engine. 🙂
