Union Station + Carriage Ride

December 3, 2018 | Our annual family trip to Union Station and all the holiday stuff we can fit into our day (during the week)! I dressed the girls in matching sweaters (per E’s request) and we were off to enjoy all the decor. I loooooove going to Union when we have the place to ourselves…it’s before school is out and the lines aren’t bad AT ALL. Even walked right up to see Santa! Next year I want to get the ornament (vs the print) because I loved how beautiful it was. E selected her annual ornament (a horse this time) and promptly dropped it and broke it’s tail off. Oh age FOUR… 🙂 Trains, letters to Santa, and the big tree were all great. But the big draw was going to the Dinosaur exhibit. E still loves them, and despite having a baby with us we thought we could manage. Had hoped she could nap in the stroller, but as soon as we entered they played a video that woke her up and that was done… 🙂 Some of the dinos moved, and E loved the ones that were mommies/babies! It was pretty cool, and I was suckered into a pink stuffed stegosaurus at the end…

And if that wasn’t enough in one day, the COLD evening was the sleigh-ride! We had forced M to participate in everything else, so D agreed to stay home with her while E and I went on the horse-carriage ride to see lights. We were bundled so tight that the wind didn’t even bother us! I adore that she’s ready for anything, all the time. What a great kick-off to the holidays!
