All aboard the Polar Express! While out selling ice cream one day Oren met the Anderson family. Mr. Anderson has built this extensive train track around his home and about four other homes. Every year at Christmas they set it up as the Polar Express. Everything is free, however they do have donations set up for a 9 year old girl in their neighborhood who has a rare type of Leukemia and has just started treatment at Primary Childrens Hospital. They do a GREAT job and make it extremely fun for the kids( OK even us parents thought it was really neat and we all want to build a train set of our own). "When we get there we'll shout yeah laughing all the way........that's the way things happen on the Polar Express."
Here we all are on our little box car. This train holds about four box cars with 3-4 people each. The train then magically took us around to different Christmas sights and lights where we, of course, met up with Santa at the North Pole. It was awesome, even though we didn't get to go down Glacier Gulch...giggle giggle
Santa's Workshop
Lights and such on the ride.
A little house with a merry-go-round inside. The really cool part was the tunnel of lights that we went through the house. It had snowflakes and lots of lights right above your head. Very cool!
