advent activities – riding the polar express

We were in such a rush to get out the door…that I forgot my camera.  But it was magical.  The freshly fallen snow made our Polar Express Trip extra special.

The designer’s first time on the Heber Creeper or Heber Valley Railroad.  The second Polar Express for the builder and a first for the rest of us.  The kiddos’ Aunt Traci takes part in the polar Express every year.  It is a wonderful tradition and we were so excited to be a part of it this year!  Traci was a wonderful host.  The explorer loved looking out the window during the ride, the older kiddos were very excited to go to the North Pole, tell Santa their Christmas desires, and meet Mrs. Claus.  definitely a magical evening: the dancer fell asleep with her bell next to her. 

Definitely need to go and check out The Polar Express from the library!

  1. I was just thinking how fun that would be to do the polar express trip…sounds magical. Luke has been especially interested in the Polar Express because they had a PE party at school.
