Maple Fest? You Sure it Wasn't a Model Train Fest?

This past weekend Mama Bear, Pizzly, and I decided to head out to the Maple Festival in Marathon, NY.  It was our first time and well worth the trip, even if the helicopter wasn't there.

At first, we weren't sure if the festival was going to be a big hit or not, but then this big yellow thing showed up.

After that, all our worries  subsided shifted because the little Pizzer was hooked...on the bus anyway. 


Then we became worried that we'd have to fight to get him off the thing.

However, that worry proved equally unfounded because there was so much going on outside of the bus that he didn't want to just stay on it, riding it back and forth to the parking lot all day.

Da's little train conductor
Once we got off we found that there was a Little Bit of everything happening; chainsaw carving, little kid plank racing, pony rides, music, food, but what Pizzly enjoyed the most was the model train exhibit.

Go Figure!

He even dressed the part.

I guess he heard ahead of time that there may be trains there to look at.

Not even the Hulk  could have dragged Pizzly away
from those trains
It was kind of odd actually in a cute way  

Yeah, I am well aware of Pizzly's love of trains, but come on! 

There was so much to see and do, but all the Pizzmeister cared about was those darn model trains.  

According to him, we didn't go to a Maple Festival, we went to a model train exhibit/festival.

He would have sat there and watched them all day if we would have let him.  

We couldn't even bribe him with food!

The Pizzmeister is fighting off sleep on his second bus
ride ever!
In the end, the only way we could get him away without him kicking and screaming was the promise of another bus ride back to the truckster. 

So, between the bus rides and the model trains, the trip out to the maple festival was well worth it, and we can't wait for next year so we can do it all over again!
