When we got out to the train yard, neither of them were happy to be standing in the cold wind and waiting for the train to open the doors
My kids wanted to go see where I grew up when they. I told them grandma and grandpa would be moving in with us soon, and before that happened, they wanted to visit them at their home. I had since moved to the southeast, and I had been trying to get my parents to move in with my husband and I for half that time. We were all going to go to mom and dad’s for Christmas and help pack up the house. While there, I planned ontaking my kids to the Fox River Trolley Museum. While my husband and dad were packing, mom and I were taking the boys to see their Christmas display. They were doing their rendition of The Polar Express on one of their train rides. It was cold the morning we set out for the Fox River Trolley Museum. My boys were complaining about the cold, so I put the heat on in the car. They were now complaining about going to a museum. Neither mom nor I had told them about the Polar Express. When we got there, the boys suddenly perked up, until we got out of the car. The cold hit them and they were shivering. Inside the museum, it was warm and comfortable. When we got out to the train yard, neither of them were happy to be standing in the cold wind and waiting for the train to open the doors. Once we got inside, the heat was on, and the train was decorated. It didn’t take long for them to get into the Christmas spirit when they realized they were going to be part of the Polar Express. Their faces lit up, and I had never seen them smiling so broadly.
