Tonight my wife and I had the pleasure of taking our two granddaughters on the Polar Express train ride out of Williams, Arizona.
It is really something to see a whole train (well we only really saw one train car, but there were 16 or so) filled with wide eyed children taking a train to the North Pole Village. Then we had Mr. C. himself board the train at the North Pole and ride it back to the station while visiting with every child and giving them a silver sleigh bell.
On the way up to the North Pole, we passed through a Time Warp tunnel that allowed us to make it all the way up there in about a half an hour. We were all served hot chocolate and cookies too.
It was something that I am sure that Tracie and I as well as our little angels will always remember. Tonight was one of the real gifts that comes with being a Grandparent.
