When Taylor was 1 we took her on our first Santa Express trip, its a super cute train ride by the Blue Ridge Railroad. This year was the best yet because all our family joined us!! It was a pretty day, a little cool but not too hot. And I was surprised, all the kids did pretty good! Here are some pics from our fun trip!
But before we left I picked up some Dunkin Donuts, yum!
Located right in the heart of downtown Blue Ridge is the train station! Its really pretty, decorated with lots of Christmas decor and plenty of places to eat and restrooms.
An attempt to get a pic with Daddy and the girls!
Picking up our tickets to ride!
So much to take in! The girls got a lot of compliments on their matching outfits, they came from the website Screaming Owl :-)
Right next to where you load the train is a super cute snack station

The great thing about this train ride is all the character's that come by for pics!! We saw an Elf, Frosty, Ginger and The Grinch! Look at Taylor holding Max the dog.

How does Granddaddy feel about being stuck on a train with loads of kids?!
The super hyper elf after Avery!
Santa and Mrs. Claus came out and each kid got a bell and candy cane. They also read The Night Before Christmas, so much fun!!
Our train ride was so much fun, I think everyone enjoyed. It is really special for all of us to get to do something together, I am so blessed to have the best family in the world!! And a special THANK YOU to Gigi for helping with our tickets XOXO
