Liam’s Heaven : Model Train Show

We live about 100 yards from a very busy train junction that runs behind our house.  It can be very loud and can rattle the house.  It also provides much amusement and excitement for our third year old.


We can’t go by a train or track without him yelling, “Look!!! Train track.  I see it”

So I decided it was a good time to attend the annual model train show that was being held at the NYS Fairgrounds.   I have never been to one so I didn’t know what to expect.

It started out a little shaky with Liam remembering the Fair this year and wanting to direct us to the “rides and animals.”  His memory amazes me.

But as soon as we got him in the dairy cattle building where the show was being held,  he was sucked in.

He bounced excitedly from display to display.  I was fascinated by the amount of detail that goes into these displays.


That’s an tornado in there.

We kept him on the leash so he could wander a will.  After about an hour he signaled that he was ready to go.

Really good time for the family.

I was near the end of 2016 when I realized that my life was totally out of balance. I was 30 and I was working my life away. I did not have strong relationships with my wife, family, or friends. It was around this time that I came across THE HAPPINESS PROJECT by Gretchen Rubin. It was then that I decided to launch my own year long project towards personal happiness for the entire year of 2017.
