The Polar Express

We had the most amazing time at the Polar Express train in Branson. My kids were so excited and we had pumped them up for two weeks about this fun night.  Jackson and Mollie Jane discussed it amongst themselves all week and were wondering if there was a magic track.  They also were convinced it was the "real Polar Express.". 
We all met for dinner in our jammies and then boarded the train.  There was hot chocolate, super loud Christmas caroling, cookies, Santa & Ms Claus, Christmas lights and our very best pals in the whole world all cozied up on one train.   How could it get any better than that?  The kids were all amazing, however, we had an extremely crabby conductor.  I thought it was part of the "act" of the serious conductor similar to the movie.   However, my pals all caught on a bit earlier to "vicious Vic" and his moodiness.   So needless to say Vic is no longer conducting and we were happy when he was done punching our tickets and moved along to the next train.  It was a fun night full of lots of fun memories and for a few moments a few tears.  However, today we have had much laughter about last night and have had multiple requests to ride the polar express again minus the crabby conductor.  The kids faces were priceless when they saw Santa and when they were all crowding in the window to see the lights and the "north pole"
