We have had a fun and busy weekend, including a road trip to St. Louis that I will write about in a separate post. First things first, though, our Friday evening ride on the Polar Express!
Indiana State Museum has preserved and replicated some of the history of the train and the Tea Room, and kids today can enjoy the train and a visit with Santa at the museum.
And if you have read the book, you know the final line:
"At one time, most of my friends could hear the bell, but as years passed, it fell silent for all of them. Even Sarah found one Christmas that she could no longer hear its sweet sound. Though I've grown old, the bell still rings for me, as it does for all who truly believe." ~Chris Van Allsburg, The Polar Express
