All aboard the Santa Train!

On Saturday Noah and his friend Isabelle rode the Santa Train – the Cupid Express. The big kids (the parents) got to ride along too! This annual event is operated by the Virginia Railway Express and is a fundraiser for Operation Lifesaver (a nonprofit focusing on train safety) and Toys for Tots.

The ride lasted about an hour. We boarded the train at the Burke VRE station and traveled to Manassas and back.











The highlight of the ride was of course supposed to be seeing Santa and Mrs. Claus. Noah still doesn’t care too much for Santa though. He was just there for the train ride…



Isabelle had a great time with Mrs. Claus though! She knows who is really in charge at the North Pole. Ha.



This was Noah’s third ride on the Santa Train and his second time riding with Isabelle. Thanks for joining us again, Isabelle!


As a fun side note, Santa remembered Noah from last year’s Cupid Express. We’ll see soon enough if that is a good thing or a bad thing! Ha.

    Such fun memories for all of you. It looks like the weather is decent there.

    It is cool here and misting. I have a feeling it will be slippery tomorrow morning. I am glad I don’t have to go anyplace.
