The Essex Steam Train

Blogging, sadly, has taken a backseat to the daily grind of life.  I'm determined to get caught up though because all of these Christmas memories must be preserved.

We traveled to Connecticut on December 28th to visit Laura, Ben, Mckenna and Elly.  Grandma and Grandpa Zollars drove to Connecticut from Ohio.  On our first night there we rode the Essex Steam Train and once you see the pictures, you'll know that the kids had a magical, delightful time.

 Elly and Laura
 Mckenna and Lucy dancing...lots and lots of dancing on this train thanks to Reindeer Casey who appears in a picture later...
 Grandma (or Gram Gram if you ask Lucy what her name is) and Macy
 Santa delivering a fantastic ornament to each of the children.

Matching outfits.
 I was there.

 I adore this picture of Brady.  He was having a blast dancing in the aisles.  And yes, that's Reindeer Casey in the background, he was awesome.
 Dancing in the aisles.
 I think they were learning the "sprinkler" dance or maybe the "shopping cart dance" in these pictures, you can see Brady and Lucy are doing the same move!

We had such a great night with the family, lots of laughter and smiles.  Great memories that we will cherish always.
