While still generally in love with dinosaurs, Patrick is no longer OBSESSED with them. It doesn't necessarily entice him to get dressed if I'm holding a Tyrannosaurus t-shirt. He doesn't only want to read a book if it's about dinosaurs. He plays with toys besides his Wal-Mart $1 dinos. He watches Netflix shows besides Dinosaur Train, Kung Fu Dino Posse, Dino Squad, Walking with Dinosaurs, Chased by Dinosaurs with Nigel, etc etc ETC AD NAUSEUM (I'd take the nausea back if he'd quit watching Power rangers, though - laaaaaame!). And, sadly, the dinosaur costume rarely gets worn anymore - not even to the store :(
But Eli has started to carry that torch! He doesn't (and I imagine never could) obsess quite like Patrick obsessed; however, it makes me smile that he enjoys wearing the costume and, like Patrick, he rides his bike dressed like a dino.
