We've been having a lot of Christmastime fun lately. Last Friday was "family day" at AmEx - and boy, was it a party! Half the adventure is just getting there; utilizing several forms of transportation: walking, train, subway, ferry.
The party did NOT disappoint - the kids were given Pillow Pets upon arrival, pictures with Santa and the Rockettes, face painting, balloon animals, holiday characters, stuff-your-own-animal, and complementary lunch in the cafeteria. It was fun to meet Ryan's co-workers and run into some friends throughout the day.
Then on Saturday we had tickets to ride the "Santa Claus Train" in Whippany. It was a 45 minute train ride and Santa comes through and meets every child and gives them a little gift. Linc was in HEAVEN! He just stared out the window the whole time in awe. Ellie didn't like it as much - she is just so squirmy, sitting down for 45 minutes is not an option for her.
