Last Saturday, we had the opportunity to ride the Santa Train for the cost of one canned food item each. Michael had drill (poor guy, seems like he always misses out on the fun stuff), but I got brave and decided to take both kids by myself. We met up with some friend of ours, Jodi, Joseph, Reese and Briella. Joseph, who was sitting across from Josiah, snapped this fantastic picture of Josiah looking out at the partially frozen river. The snow was gently falling and it was simply breathtaking. We even saw a bald eagle.
I packed a lunch for the kids and brought along some tea in a thermos. Don't you love my hubby's idea for insulating the thermos? It is the top of an old work boot. Hailey is waving at everyone as we pull out of the station.
Here we are with our dear friends. The kids seemed a bit fried that day. Josiah was the only one of the kids who really seemed to be enjoying himself. As you can see, the toddlers were tired and Briella wasn't having any of it. Despite it all, the adults had a good time and were able to catch some of the scenery between feeding kids, potty breaks and so on.
I made the mistake of trying to get a picture of the kids after the train ride. Yeah, right! As you can see candy canes and snow where much more interesting than Mom and her camera, LOL!
