Irvine Park Railroad, The Christmas Train

IMG_3272

A few days ago my parents, B & I took the boys to Irvine Park Railroad to see Santa's Village and take the Christmas train to the North Pole.

Santa's village has a bounce house, coloring corner, cookie decorating area, games and much more.

There are also lots of fun places to pose for pictures.

Fortunately a very nice man was able to get us on the train about 15 minutes later.

The boys were all loaded up, All Aboard!
and off we went!

We passed by horses and a peacock, tree filled with lights and other parts of the park.

Daniel absolutely loved the train!

Peanut was just kicking back on papa's lap.
Later that night he said papa out of nowhere and hasn't stopped since.

When you arrive in the North Pole there is a big stage with Santa waiting for all the children (and one adorable puppy that we saw).

Peanut was more interested in running around and picking apart the hay.

The boys saw Santa again and it went a little better this time.
I'm pretty sure if Daniel hadn't started to fuss that Peanut would've been fine.

Smiling, I'm not so sure but I think he would have been okay sitting there.

I like the picture of Santa and Mrs. Claus in front of the Angel Stadium.

By the time we were done visiting Santa is was dark outside and you could really see all the lights.

It was packed when we got back to the other side!

Lots of excited little faces just waiting to get on the Christmas train and go see Santa!

It was really fun and we will definitely be going back next year!

  1. Your images make me smile. So did you card. Thank you.

    Christmas Day has flown past. Just now I have a quiet moment between bouts of after-Christmas sale shopping. I wanted to stop by and wish you all the joys of the season. As the quiet week approaches, may you find time to do all the things you most love. May you know, each day, how very blessed and loved you are. Happy Holidays, friend. ~ Relyn
