All Aboard

We got tickets for the Boulder City Santa Train for December 13. Tanner opted to sleep in lua of seeing Santa, so it was just the four of us. It was a super windy day that day. My friend Andrea had prebought the tickets for us, so we just showed up around 9:30 and stood in a huge line. We came to find out that the line was to buy tickets for the 12:00 train. So we finally got in the right line and waited to board.

Cynjyn with the ticket.

Waiting patiently to board.

Waiting patiently for the train to take off and Santa to come. We were in the very back car of the train and so we had the icky seating, but Santa and Mrs. Claus started in the back car and so Cynjyn and Taz were one of the first to meet them.

What a jolly picture! After meeting Santa, we got to just sit back and enjoy the view.

Yes, this is the lovely view. Isn't Vegas so pretty!:(Taz know that one of Tanner's top 10 fears in life is going over bridges, so he took a view of the road beneath us as we went over the bridge.
When we returned to the depot, we did a little picture snapping in Santa's sleigh and they had a mailbox that took the kids letters directly to the North Pole. Luckily we knew this so Taz and Cynjyn had their letters written and ready to go.

It was a fun morning.

That does sound like a fun time. For the record, I think Tanner was switched at birth--he really is my child. Loves to sleep, has lists of things he's afraid of--among them a fear of bridges, etc... How long was the drive?
