While the boys were at school Friday I packed up the car. Once they all got home, we loaded up the van and headed out of town. I did not tell them where we were going, they just knew we were going to a hotel. We were headed to Ely to go on the Polar Express. They were so excited that it started snowing on the way up there and when we got to the hotel Friday night it was 19 degrees and snowing and tons of snow on the ground already. Saturday morning, after breakfast we headed to the park to play in the snow. The boys had fun sledding down the hill, making snow angels, throwing snowballs at eachother and trying to make a snowman. Later Saturday, we went to the train yard and picked up our tickets for the train ride. Thomas and Nathan were so excited that they were going to go on the train!
Once we got to the North Pole Santa came onboard and the boys got to visit with him & of course take pictures.
Sweet little Nay-Nay...he was SO excited the entire train ride he had a hard time sitting still. He kept talking the whole way to the North Pole about everything, what he wants for Christmas, school, friends, trains. Once Santa got off the train and we started to head back to the train station I asked him a question and he didn't answer me, I leaned over and looked at him and found him sound asleep! Apparently going to the North Pole was way to exciting for him!
