The Polar Express…

Last Sunday evening we hopped in our van and headed to Connorsville, Indiana to ride the Polar Express! We waited to tell the boys where we were going until we hit the road and boy were they excited!

We have a DVD player in the van, but we only use it on trips, so the boys were totally excited to watch “The Polar Express”. Noah also read the book on the trip and was proud of himself for turning pages and staying in time with the movie.

Once we arrived, we parked and walked to the train. It was amazing.

When we got to the “train station” we were greeted by the conductor and engineer. This was a special treat because they were sitting there together and getting to meet them was a special bonus.

The surprises kept on coming for the boys. Their best friends, Peter and James also showed up. Grandma and Grandpa Weldon treated their family to The Polar Express ride too! It was so fun to see Noah’s face when he saw Peter.

Here are some pictures of the ride. We drank hot chocolate, ate cookies, sang Christmas songs and enjoyed visiting with the Weldon family. 🙂

We rode the Express all the way to the North Pole, picked up Santa and headed back to the station. All of our boys loved Jolly Old Saint Nick, even Collin, until he sat on Santa’s lap. 🙂

Peter and his Grandpa were pooped! They crashed on the way back to the station!

It was a wonderful night full of the magic of the holiday season.
It was so much fun to experience this great night! Thank you Mom and Dad for the wonderful gift and for letting us tag along. We love you!
