Polar Express

I'm going to file the Heber Creeper under the "really-good-idea, but-probably-won't-do-it-again" category. Last night for FHE we boarded the polar express on the Heber Creeper for a 90 minute train ride. Perhaps in our rush to gather the needed outerwear (the rail car was not climate controlled) and baby gear, feed the kids a quick drive-thru meal, and barely arrive at the train station before departure, our attitudes weren't as cheerful as they could have been, but our overall experience of the train ride was just average. We all enjoyed the Christmas sing-along and on-board hot cocoa, but the train was so cold that the windows were frozen over and we couldn't see a thing outside, making the ride a little on the boring side. Oh well. We tried. More "cool parents" points for us.
