Weekend in Williams, AZ

Friday, December 21, 2012

Snowflakes, snow forts, snowballs, snow lanterns, snow angels!  Snow is fun and beautiful, but what makes snow so special?  FAMILY!  Playing in the snow is something that you're never too old to enjoy and for us it was a low-key, fun-filled day that our family enjoyed together.  Shannon & Mark2 (click here to see their post) invited us along this year to share their annual trip to Williams for a day, to enjoy the snow and to ride the Polar Express to the North Pole.  This is going to be a longggggg post of pictures because they were just too good and too cute not to showcase them all, so bundle up and hang on while we go sledding thru each one...

First, my collages... I LOVE making these!
FUN IN THE SUN oops, I meant SNOW!
Do you see the size of that snowball?  They couldn't just make them the size of their hands, no way it was all out WAR between these boys...

...and they showed no mercy for our little guys!

Ooooh, Ken really got Reggie good with this one, hahahaha - didn't I just say that "you're never to old to play in the snow."

I told you they had NO MERCY at all for the little ones, look at poor Trey's face, he was terrified!

Malaysia was cold and took a break in the truck to play on the iPhone.

This was Sabriya getting hit with all the snow on the sleigh you see here in Reggie's hand.

NOW for the highlight of our little family get away... Come with us and experience the magic of The Polar Express (the classic children's book written by Chris Van Allsburg).  The story came to life when  the Grand Canyon Railway's Polar Express train departed the Depot in Williams, AZ.   It took us on a journey through the dark and quiet wilderness for a special visit to the "North Pole." We enjoyed hot chocolate and cookies while listening to the magical story. It was so much fun to watch the joy on our grand babies faces when the train arrived at the North Pole... and guess who was waiting for us?  Santa Claus and his reindeer!
