For the last several years, we have made a tradition of going to our local park and riding the Holiday Express. The park is decorated with huge lights displays all around the park. The train runs around the park and you can look at all the lights. It’s fun and the kids LOVE it!
It has seemed like Christmas is sneaking up on me this year and I felt like we were running out of time to get there and ride the train. Since it’s been soooooo cold, we’ve been putting it off. I knew that if the weather warmed up some, everyone else would probably have planned to go out to ride. So we decided to try it Wednesday evening. We’ve gone in the cold before and have had to stand in very long lines. This time we went right after Zach and I got off work, and that and the fact that it was COLD, there was hardly anyone there. We didn’t have to wait in line at all. In fact, we walked to the train, rode it, and walked back to the cars in a shorter amount of time than we’ve waited in line in previous years!
I love that our kids look forward to do this as one of our Christmas traditions. We all had a great time and I’m so glad we got to go!
Here’s to many more years of riding the Holiday Express and kiddos who don’t outgrow wanting to ride it for a very, very long time!!!
