I started this blog with one daughter, kept it up with the other, to spend time together doing something we enjoyed.
However, things change and people evolve. My daughters are older, busier, and not as interested in writing.
From now on this blog will be mostly mom with occasional contributions from my daughters and maybe even my husband.
Nothing else will change. We'll still focus on sharing fun places to go, fun things to do, and more, and we would  still love to hear your views too

Where-To-Go Wednesday - 14th Annual Holiday Train Show at Grand Central and The Gumball Gang Crime-Solving Kids

What: 14th Annual Holiday Train Show at Grand Central

Where: NY Transit Museum Gallery Annex and Store
             Grand Central Terminal
             89 E. 42nd St.
             New York, NY

Who: All ages

Now through February 21, 2016

Mom's view: Grand Central Station's annual Holiday Train Show started over the holiday season and continues through February 21. The exhibit features a miniature Metro North train, miniature subway trains and a miniature Grand Central Station among other things. It is not a very large exhibit, and I am sure there are or have been other model train exhibitions that are much larger. It is not worth making a special trip to Grand Central Station just to see this exhibit. However, if you are in Grand Central Station, viewing it is a fun way to kill some time if you need to. Anyone who is particularly interested in trains or miniature versions of well-known locations will really enjoy it. Small children who love trains will love it. In fact it is a good place to take small children who love trains because it is small enough not to be overwhelming. For more information go to 
What: The Gumball Gang Crime-Solving Kids

Where: TADA Youth Theater
            15 W. 28th St
            New York, NY

Who: Ages 3+

When: Now through February 15
Mom's view: This is another entertaining production by TADA Youth Theater. This one is about a group of kids who solve the mystery of a missing painting. TADA productions are not your typical children's productions. They are full scale productions with professional quality sets and costumes. However, that is not what makes them so special. What makes them so special is the opportunity to see a group of talented kids strut their stuff. These kids sing, act, and dance better than a lot of performers who are a lot older and/or have a lot more experience. At least some of these kids are sure to have a big future in show business. In fact, Josh Peck of Drake and Josh and Grandfathered, and Ricki Lake of Hairspray and the Ricki Lake Show among others got their starts in the program. If you want a chance to be able to see a future star before he or she hits it big, there is a good bet you will have the opportunity to do so by attending one of TADA's shows.  For more information or to order tickets go to 
And that's Mom's view. Tune in  to tomorrow's Talking Topics post for more about the 14th Annual Holiday Train Show at Grand Central and The Gumball Gang Crime-Solving Kids.
