The weekend before Thansksgiving David, Rogan, Sally and I took a drive up to Williams (30 minutes outside of Flagstaff) and experienced the Polar Express. How fun!!!
It's so much like the book... hot chocolate, cookies, traveling through the darness by train, hearing the clackety-clack of the train tracks, the North Pole all lite up and finally Santa handing a silver bell to each child.
Boy was it COLD!!!!!! Living in the Phoenix area, we're not used to bundling up like that.
Okay - enough for the first attempt.
