The Polar Express

My friend and I took our kids to the local train station for a Polar Express train ride. To prepare Olivia for the event, we watched the movie and read the book.  She was very much in to the story and couldn't wait for us to go to the train station.  When we arrived, we went into the program room and listened to the story.  After the story a special guest appeared in the middle of singing Jingle Bells.  It was Santa and Mrs. Claus.  He lead us to the train outside where we listened to the conductor yell, "All Aboard", and we boarded the train.  On the train we had snacks and took a ride - almost all the way to the North Pole.  Mrs. Claus let us know that we couldn't go all the way because the elves were getting our presents ready and if we saw them, we wouldn't be able to get them on Christmas.  Good thing we didn't see anything!!  Olivia really had a good time and thought the train ride was super cool. :)
