Before we left, I took some pictures, because both kids have actually gotten much better about staying still, saying CHEESE, and getting their picture taken. Hallelujah!
Within minutes of arriving, Jeremy and I adopted a man-to-man defense scheme. Luke and I visited the train set.
He quickly lost interest.
Somehow, we kept them contained enough to get these pics.
The gift shop, not surprisingly, was a favorite of the kids, but we. bought. NOTHING. It's only taken 6.5+ years, but Jeremy and I finally might be developing backbones. :)
Luke tolerated a hand tattoo - awesome!
On the train! This was the best pic we could get side by side of them. Kate wouldn't sit still, and Luke was kind of unimpressed. (Don't let Kate's sober expression here fool you: she was GIDDY about riding the train!)
Kate thought this rideable Thomas was the bomb.com!
In conclusion: not a home run for us this year, but that's okay. We hear the Polar Express train ride is epic - we will be there, decked out in our Christmas jammies, in December! :)
