On Monday night, we were invited to a Polar Express party. . . complete with pajamas, cookies, hot chocolate, and great friends! The owner of our favorite ice cream spot in town (also the doctor who took out my wisdom teeth) bought a couple of old train cars, and he has remodeled them to become a restaurant. One of the train cars will be for casual dining, and the other for fine dining. We were very excited to get a peek inside these trains for the first time, and they exceeded our expectations! Nolan and Ephraim are crazy about trains right now, so it was perfect timing.
I loved the red and silver retro tables and the colorful, bright Christmas lights!
The always-moving, almost-always-blurry Zimm boys :)
After eating, we chatted with friends, and the boys made a couple of cute train crafts.
We climbed aboard the fine dining train as well. It was like stepping back into the early 20th century! And it was SO fancy! I can't wait to eat there someday.

The owner passed out big milk chocolate trains as take-home gifts. The boys couldn't wait five seconds after we got home to try a bite of theirs. Ephraim is saying "Choo Choo" in the picture with his little lips sticking out. :)
What a magical night! I'm so grateful for the opportunity to do things like this with the boys, and I know these are the moments in which the best memories are made.
