We had the fun of going on the Snowflake Express this year. It is the "Hawkeye train" ride put on by 93.5 (the radio station) to raise money for Magical Mix kids. The kids loved it! It was such a fun family activity. The train ride went up by Shell Rock and came back- about a 40 minute ride.
On our way towards the train, we ran into our friends Wes and Staci and family so we all sat together.
After the ride, we all got to go and have cookies and hot chocolate.
Oh don't forget- Santa was on the ride. We don't do much Santa at our house- our kids know he is a pretend guy- so we "pretend" he comes and brings a present but the kids know it is us. So the kids were kinda interested in what this Santa guy was all about. Jace said, "Is he a monster?" I guess a lot of the pretend stuff he knows about are monsters? How a two year old thinks! They thought it was fun to see him though.
The little boys were mesmerized with the train ride.
Jace was also stuck to Wes throughout the ride. He loves that guy!
It was a great time! We will have to do it again next year. I'm so thankful we were able to get tickets!
