After lunch and more shopping, we traveled to Bryson City, NC for the Polar Express train ride. Last year we went during the daytime and were very disappointed. After talking to Rebecca and hearing how great of a time they had at night last year, I decided to try for a night ride. I have no regrets! It was completely different. They turned the lights off in the train and you could really enjoy the Christmas lights throughout the ride. The girls loved it!! As busy as we stayed, we still were not ready to go home Sunday night. Lexy even wanted to go back to the cabin. We have decided to make the Stewart/Dotson Christmas weekend an annual event.
Sorry, my pictures are backwards! This is Santa on the Polar Express train ride. All the kids got a bell.
Lexy's favorite part of the movie is the handing out of hot chocolate. She was singing right along with the song!
We are so thankful daddy works hard for us girls!
This was taken when the train first pulled up. Another thing we didn't get to see last year. Lexy flipped out when she figured out what was coming.
This was Lexy's favorite ride! She is still talking about the "tea cup ride with Adam, Mary Katherine and Ellie. Adam went fast. I liked it."
