Weekend in Williams

Last weekend we got to do the famous Polar Express train ride thanks to the ticketmaster herself, Sara! Derek (bro) and Alexa (sis-in-law) drove up with Owen, Drew, and me. We followed Lindsey (friend), Kip (Lindsey's husband), Sophie (their daughter), and Shay & Asia (Lindsey's nieces).This is how he fell asleep on the way up... wearing his $1.50 Wal-Mart beanie (from the women's section).

K we were all so excited for the snow. I haven't seen snow deep enough to play in, in probably 10 years.

Then the train ride... After our train had been going a few minutes and we had our hot chocolate, the train stopped and the power went off. Our whole train car ended up having to relocate due to bad breaks and a "flat tire" (their dumbed down explanation for us). But it wasn't a big deal at all, except we got jipped of our cookies! Sophie was still disturbed by that the next morning :)

Uncie Der Der!

"The North Pole."

Getting our bells. Those things are huge!

Then Saturday before we went home we played in snow at a rest stop. Kip took these pictures that I LOVE.
Owen's showing off his scary skull gloves.
These are what he chose just for this occasion.

2 years old... that's my goal to get rid of the binky.

Anyway... just a way fun weekend. Could only have been better if Justin was there. Thanks again Sara!

How fun! We've been on the Polar Express a couple times. In fact, when I was going to NAU a bunch of us from the Institute volunteered to be Santa's helpers on the train. I love Drew's face in the first pic of the snow!

Yep, I found ya through Sara;) Glad you all had fun on the Polar Express! We haven't been in a couple of years. Rosalie told us Lindsey was going too--poor Sophie missed her cookies huh? How funny. My sister and niece were there that night as well. Your kids are adorable! I'm glad they had fun in the snow. Looks like you all had a great time!

Glad you remember me:) Take care!

How fun! My kids would have been really upset about no cookie though! I love the pictures you got.

What a fun time! We need to go do that with our kids one of these years! Peyton is almost 2 and a 1/2 and he still uses a binky so don't fret. All my kids have been binky babies and it's such a pain to brake them from it. oh well, such is the life for most!
