    May 14th was a fairly cloudy, cool day here in CT.  Not exactly ideal temperature wise, but also a wonderful day to be out and about without having to worry about overheating.  My kids love trains- all three of them- I can't tell you how many hundreds of hours we've logged building tracks, rebuilding tracks, ...
