We had just arrived in Portland around noon after being in a car for 18 hours. My brother called me asking if I wanted to go with him to an event that he was surprising his kids with. I was really exhausted and not feeling so hot, so I offered to make dinner instead and let him borrow my D5000 to bring with him so he can get some photos of the kids during their Polar Express ride! He did a great job and the kids absolutely loved it!
They beat me home afterwards and when I walked in with the groceries my niece, Jasmine, couldn’t wait to tell me all about it.
“I never knew the Polar Express was real until today!”
“I got a bell! And a ticket!”
“I can hear the bell ring and that means I believe in Santa!”
“My favorite part was drinking the hot chocolate and seeing Santa!”
I was so happy to see how happy they were! It was fabulous 🙂 It’s amazing how much they’ll tell me about their life if they know I’m there to listen. It’s amazing.
Check out some photos that my brother, Jack, took of my niece and nephew on their little trip!
