All Aboard the Polar Express!

This weekend was our long-awaited journey on the Polar Express!  We joined some of our LPA family for a fun train ride to the North Pole.

We had to wait a while to board the train, but these kids can have fun anywhere!

All decked out in their jammies and ready to go!

All aboard!  Each child got a special “golden” ticket.  Could that smile be any bigger???

The conductor came around to punch each ticket and to remind the kids to hide their tickets from the hobo!

We enjoyed some hot cocoa and cookies and then we could see the lights of the North Pole out our windows!  Santa and the elves waved as we passed by.  Then they hopped on board to join us for the ride back home!

Here Santa is handing out the special Polar Express sleigh bells.

The kids really had a great time!  Afterward we joined our friends for some dinner, and the kids were SO wound up!  There was a little too much kissing going on at the table!!

Love the Polar Express! I wish we had something like that near us. I think I googled it last year and we don't :o(. ... And could the love birds be any cuter?! Love it! Hold on tight Mom!
