"The Polar Express!"

A few weeks ago, we drove to Palestine to the Texas State Railroads's depot there for "The Polar Express" train ride with my family! Since Abigail had so much fun on the "Thomas the Train" train ride, I thought it would be fun for the whole family to go to The Polar Express train ride! There were 9 adults, 5 children, & 1 infant!! Wow!! I have a big family & it's only going to get bigger since my youngest brother isn't married yet!
The children all wore their pajama's for the train ride! The weather was cold & wet, so it was a good thing we were on the train! Everyone loved the train ride! They served hot chocolate & cookies on the train & sang Christmas carols! We stopped in the North Pole & picked up Santa & his elves! They read the book "The Polar Express" over the intercom during the train ride! The train ride was only an hour, but that was long enough for the kiddos! It was fun watching everyone's faces light up with excitement & joy! The steam engine train was pretty cool to see in person! So, once again the drive to ride the train was well worth it! Abigail thought we were riding on Emily, the train from Thomas the Train! So cute!!
The whole crew!
