Polar Express

Last night we took the kids on the polar express.  It is a real train ride that took us from Independence to the North Pole (the Cuyahoga Valley).  It is modeled after the book and movie Polar Express.  The kids all wore PJs and on the train ride we got hot cocoa and cookies.  The workers were dressed as elves and read stories.  When we got to the north pole (the Cuyahoga Valley), there were elves and snowmen and other characters outside waiving to us and then Santa rode by on his sleigh and waved.  He boarded the train and handed out silver bells to all the kids.  Then we rode the train back to Independence and went home.  The kids got to bed late but it was pretty fun.  They loved it.
