Polar Express

We had such a wonderful time at the Polar Express last weekend. Mia, Pop, and Lil' Justin came and joined us for the evening and it made it such a special activity. We took them to West Crust Pizza for some delicious pizza and then headed over to the train depot. We were greeted by the conductor and we headed up to our seats. They played the music from the movie throughout the ride and in "mid-ride" they dimmed the lights and played the audio of the story. One of the chefs came around with the book to show the kids the pictures. The Conductor came around and punched holes in their golden ticket and it ended up being the letter of their name. They also played the "hot chocolate" song and the chefs went back and forth clapping and getting the train crowd into it. They brought some great souvenir mugs with hot chocolate and whipped cream, along with a cookie. After about 45 minutes we came to the "North Pole". Santa and his elves were bravely standing outside in the freezing cold waving and dancing in front of a decorate scape and then as the train stopped they joined the train ride back to Lubbock. The elves and Santa walked around the train bringing the silver bell and asking what the kids wanted for Christmas. The kids absolutely loved the trip and so did we!

Much Love,
The Reynolds
