Last week we took the boys on the Polar Express. We had an extra little surprise because Jon had to work, but as a last minute decision he took off and was able to come with us.
The boys were so excited and it was truly a magical night.
We started off with dinner at a drive in, which the boys have never experienced before. Of course they picked sloppy joes. Why wouldn't they pick the messiest item on the menu to eat in the car!

Together we boarded the train and munched on popcorn. As we pulled out of the station the boy's faces lit up with curiosity and anticipation. We were heading to the North Pole. Our evening was filled with cookies, hot chocolates, story time, Christmas carols and even Santa Claus.
It was an evening to remember.

When we arrived home we had two little boys fast asleep. Jon and I got to sit around by the fire and enjoy a glass of wine. And, to add to the surprises, not only did my best friend babysit Jess but she also swept, picked up all the toys AND unloaded the dishwasher.
She's a keeper :)
