For my train boy, a trip to Union Station last weekend to visit the Christmas trains and see "The Polar Express" on the big screen. We didn't make it through the movie--there was too much else to see and do.
His eyes were big as saucers, and we could've spent hours looking at the model trains. He was nervous about the mini-train ride at first, but finally gave me a small smile on the last go 'round. And then, a quick trip outside--in the sleet--to take a peep at the KC Southern Christmas Train, all lit up like a dream.
We'll be talking about it in July still. I think we just made a new family tradition.
Happy Christmas friends!
