Polar Express!

Yesterday we all took a ride on the Polar Express! A 2.5 hour train ride out of Cedar Park! We got to play on the train, look out the back, drink hot chocolate, eat cookies, see Santa and Mrs. Clause, listen to stories, and carol! It was a fun event for the whole family that we will .....NEVER do again.

Well, maybe the wounds are too fresh, so I won't make that decision too fast; however, keeping the kids happy and moderately controlled on the train for 2.5 hours while they are bouncing around fueled on hot chocolate/cookies is slightly difficult. But...when Santa brought all the kids a train whistle...that was a nightmare. Imagine 20-30 kids per train car blowing whistles for about 10-15 minutes...(that's the time it took all the parents to finally break and take them away). The rest of the ride home was pretty much the crash after the excitement...some games, some resting, and some overall family cuddling.
