Model trains and spreading the (link) love 2


Happy Sunday!

My sailor and I had a great day date yesterday. ๐Ÿ™‚

We went to lunch where I attempted to eat a chicken sandwich that was as big as my head.


Really, there’s grilled chicken under there!

In case you were wondering, I didn’t succeed. It was too much. I ate about a third of it and then “deconstructed” it. Meaning I pulled the bacon off and ate it. And I ate the rest of the lettuce and tomato. Okay, fine, I ate a couple more bites of onion ring, too. I don’t usually do onion rings but that one was good! ๐Ÿ™‚

Then, we went to a model train show!


My father-in-law worked on the rail road so my sailor loves him some trains. And, so do I! Always have. Some of my best memories involve running across the street from my Grandma’s house to watch the trains. She lived just off Lake Michigan and there were train tracks between her house and the lake. I could sit on that grassy knoll for HOURS watching trains and counting cars. I even got a model train set for Christmas one year when I was a kid! It was destiny for us to end up together. ๐Ÿ™‚

We’re talking about building tracks that go around the ceiling level of our living room. We’ve got window cornices that are the perfect height and we would go from there. Yes, we are big kids. ๐Ÿ™‚


We also want to add in some tunnels so we’re going to have to figure that out. That may equal punching holes in walls. Not with our fists! But, there really is something cool about a train coming out of a tunnel……


Anywho, enough about trains – it’s time for some link love!

    • It was pretty cool! We probably could have spent more time there just looking at all the ones that were set up. It was pretty big and we were getting tired about 3/4 the way through. I can only imagine how exhausted the little kids were!
