We have been waiting all year to do our Polar Express tradition. Last year it was our favorite thing we did. True story. We felt more prepared to make it awesome this year. Krystal gifted us the Polar Express soundtrack last year, and we added the Frozen soundtrack this year. Mix those things with our favorite Whitney Houston Christmas soundtrack, we were ready.
We were headed out thinking Paul wasn't going with, but he pulled in at the exact moment to tag along with us. The kids all picked out jammies, brought their new blankets, and had pure excitement.
We made a quick stop at Beans & Brews, McDonald's, and we were on to our favorite street to look at lights.
Sabrina didn't love it. May have had to do with her spilling her entire soda in her lap.
Devin kept asking when we were going to get on the real train. Obviously we didn't explain things clearly enough to him.
Savannah didn't want it to ever end, and was totally disappointed when we headed home too early.
So our first attempt at the Polar Express this year was a total bust. Eh, you win some, you lose some. We will be going out again, and next time I am sure it will be better...because it can't get any worse.
