Bud stayed home with Hadley and at one point in the night Cole said, "Bud's gotta see this!"
We weren't allowed to take pictures on the train, but it was really amazing. It told the Christmas Story. It started with creation. Zoe loved going through the tunnel with the planets. Cole took it all in and said he liked all of it except the "sad part" (when Jesus died on the cross). I talked to him through the ride, trying to explain the story. I told him that Jesus died on the cross so we can go to Heaven. After the train ride was over he asked, "So are we going to God's place now?"
The next stop wasn't Heaven, but it was Santa's Palace. Brewer, Hayden, Brady, and Zoe talked to Santa and took a picture with him. Cole hid behind me and seemed a little suspicious of the big guy.
After Santa, we grabbed some dinner. Look at the size of these corndogs!
Cole doesn't like the bread, which made it look a little disturbing.
Cole rode a little train too.
