Taking a Break with Wallace & Gromit
I decided we needed to take a little break from "Thomas the Tank Engine" earlier in July. We made a trip to Costco and I ended up buying a cheap DVD of "The Tourist" for me and "Wallace and Gromit the Complete Collection" for the little one.
I would have liked to have chilled out in the summer heat to a so so grown-up movie, but I never win in the war of who's show are we going to watch. Relaxing while Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie race around Venice was going to have to wait.
I did get a huge kick out of watching the little one laugh at Wallace and Gromit's antics as they took on a wayward penquin jewel thief. "The Wrong Trousers" got two thumbs up from my miniature critic, which I'm sure is more than "The Tourist" scored. We ended up watching Wallace & Gromit twice before lights out. Turns out there was a little blue train that is part of the final chase scene. My little one squealed "They're riding Thomas! It's Thomas." That amused me, we didn't completely escape Thomas.
