Our crew had the BEST time in Branson last weekend. I bought tickets to the Polar Express back in August and although they were pricey, this train ride did not disappoint. It was worth every penny!! The kids were so excited to go and when we got there, their eyes just glowed! The train station had snow machines to make it snow, the hobo sat on top of the train and talked to us while we boarded, the conductor was fantastic, and the “servers” danced with their trays of hot chocolate. And let me tell you the sugar cookies and hit chocolate were legit too!
As the train rolled down the track, we saw elves dancing and waved at Santa outside of his workshop. He later boarded the train and the kids were able to meet him and take a picture with him. Reese was in awe of him when he walked into our train car. Her eyes lit up and absolutely sparkled. Brooks wasn’t scared of him this year, and just wanted to give him a hug. We all received the silver bells from Santa while on the train too. It was truly magical!
I never want to forget how magical these years are during the holidays. I am so happy that we took the time to ride the Polar Express. We may have to make this an annual thing! :)

Letter "B" for Brooks
We stayed the night at the Hilton Landing. Staying in a hotel is just about as exciting for kids as Christmas morning. They LOVED every minute of it. They also loved going to eat at Cantina Laredo and walking around the Landing the next day.
The next post is our FUN FILLED DAY at Silver Dollar City!!
