All Aboard The Union Station Polar Express

A few weeks ago my family and I were able to experience the adventure for the second year in a row. It was amazing last year and just as amazing this time around. My kids absolutely love this newer family tradition of ours. This holiday train ride is sure to be a tradition that we all look forward to for years and years to come.


Beautiful vintage train cars.

For weeks leading up to our trip, the kids kept asking when we would be going on the Polar Express. As soon as their was a chill in the air, they knew that the time to visit Santa at the North Pole was almost upon us. When the night finally came they were ecstatic. They wore matching pajamas and experienced so many sibling moments together.
