In early December, we took the boys to the Polar Express in Palestine. It is about 2ish hours away from our house (one way), so we were a little apprehensive about going, BUT it was SOOOO worth it. The boys had a blast, we had a blast watching them experience something magical, AND a wonderful added bonus was that we meet our friends from Dallas---Brad, Cassie, Lawson & Harlan. Cassie and I have been friends for more years than I can count. Way back in the day---we lived together. It was so fun to meet her and her family and experience this train ride together. All the boys had a blast.....the pictures don't lie!!! :)
You have to BELIEVE for it to be magical----or at least be a parent watching our kids love every moment of it. :)
Here is the train and all the kids waiting in anticipation (in the cold) for the train ride to take place.
They were so excited----well everyone, except Gavin who did not want his picture taken at the moment! :)
Now the smiles are starting to come....
All 5 boys---wearing the same PJ's---so cute!
Are we really going to the North Pole?
IT IS MAGICAL---you have to BELIEVE!!! :)
The conductor came by to punch the tickets----just like the movie. Check out Grayson's look.
And here comes Santa....
The kids are playing with the jingle bells from Santa----if you could only hear the sound here----you would really need ear plugs.
Our trip to the North Pole via the Polar Express was amazing and I highly recommend it to anyone with small children. It was one of those moments in your life that will never be forgotten.
