After dinner and checking into our hotel, we headed to the train station to take some pictures, let Rylie see Mrs. Claus and Santa (yeah, not a fan this time around!) and then waited to board the train to the North Pole. I have to say that I loved Rylie's pjs, robe, and beanie that we got for this trip. :)
Once we got on the train, they handed out cookies and hot cocoa. Rylie, of course, loved both. We had brought our copy of the "Polar Express" book so that she could follow along while they read the book. She loved looking at the lights as we arrived at the North Pole and waved to Santa and his elf. It was so fun to watch her take everything in and how excited she got about the little things.
The whole experience was so fun and we hope to make it an annual Christmas tradition!
