Earlier this week we took Calleigh on The Polar Express Train Ride at Union Station in St Louis. I booked it ages ago as I managed to grab some tickets- they sold out really fast! I have been looking forward to it for weeks and it did not disappoint!
We arrived at the station and went to the depot to get our boarding passes and gold tickets and then shortly afterwards we were boarding the train headed for the North Pole! Calleigh was really excited to be going on a train and although she hasn't seen The Polar Express she enjoyed all of the actors and the things they were doing. We drank hot chocolate to the hot chocolate song from the movie and then enjoyed a cookie whilst enjoying the views of downtown St Louis. We hadn't seen the arch for a long time so it looked really good!
We arrived at the North Pole and Santa was waving at us, Calleigh loved it and was waving back getting so excited.. and then he boarded the train. We were right at the back and Calleigh was first to meet Santa as he came on. He kneeled down in front of her and gave her a silver bell, just like the film, and asked her what she wanted for Christmas. She of course replied that she wanted My Little Ponies!
This was the first year that Calleigh enjoyed seeing Santa and wasn't terrified of him haha. Just the look of excitement on her face was enough to bring me to tears.
I can't wait to see her face Christmas morning!
In other news you may have noticed it's been awfully quiet here on the blog as of late. Well, we have got ourselves a house and are in the process of moving in (I know a week before Christmas?? Are we crazy?).
I'm going to really try and post again before Christmas and share some photos of Calleigh in her new room. If not it will be something to look forward to next year!
