I posted about the one they have in Bryson City, NC and hope to take the grandchildren next year when the youngest is 5. It looks like you all had a ball and I'm really looking forward to it now. Take care.

Vee said...

What fun! And you got to go, too. It doesn't get much better than that. You didn't take them up on the pjs option?

nancy said...

That sounds like fun.. I wish we have one of those here. We do have a dinner express train out in the country. We'd enjoyed it very much. Went in the fall. Glad you and your family had fun. Look like you did too.
Have a good week.

Polar Express is my most favorite movie! I could watch it over and over! I remember when it first came out in theatres. I took the kids to see it even though they wanted to see The Incredibles. The entire ride home I heard, "Do you think this happened on The Incredibles..or that.." But they did enjoy Polar Express. This looks like such a fun ride you all will remember for years to come! How very special!! I want to go there myself!

Polar Express is my favorite holiday movie. I want to go on this excursion next year....and I would totally wear my PJs. Did you get a jingle bell at the end?

Merry Christmas! La

Jeanne said...

Oh bj, I love this post. You are all adorable. You, your daughter and grands are beautiful. What a fun thing to do. This is so funny and you won't believe it but I 'just' told Bill I wanted to see that movie. He said, "You did and you slept through it." HA! He is right. Maybe they will show it for the holiday.

Thomas the Tank comes near here and we have taken all the grands when we had grandkids week. They were all much younger. We too took a train ride. It was a BIG deal with countless people and children in attendance. We had more fun.

Have a happy 'holiday' day today.
Love, Jeanne

PS; I finally finished my shopping yesterday. It was an all day affair but I'm done and am happily wrapping and bagging countless gifts. Happy me!!!

what a great idea and what fun!!!

SueLovesCherries said...

What an awesome idea! I didn't know they did that anywhere! The photos of your conductor make him look like Prince William - hmmmm. You've just got to frame the pic of Brynna with the conductor's hat - it's priceless! And the mugs - super memory!

Shoot! It was on television the other day and I put my headset on my little neighbor girl and never heard another peep from her. I did hear her burst out laughing now and again. I MUST see that.
:) Yep...I must. Got any coffee cake just sitting around? Hmmmmm? :) I'll be right over.
Hugs,
Mona

Sue (Someone's Mom) said...

So fun! I love the movie and I love the music from the movie. What a wonderful experience for the entire family!

Ann said...

What a wonderful way to celebrate. They didn't leave out a single detail did they? Oh my hot chocolate, and the conductor. Oh my grandkids would LOVE this. You look so sweet with Santa!
Happy Weekend to you.
