What to do this holiday season? It’s a question families face each year as they set out to make the most of this special time together – living intentionally, creating memories to last a lifetime and going above and beyond to cultivate young, developing imaginations and instill strong ideals for quality values to be passed down for generations to come.
So, how can one family accomplish this and experience an amazing evening of holiday cheer…a favorite pick of mine: The Santa Express Train at The Royal Gorge Route Railroad!

Our Christmas ride was so much fun that we returned this summer to help with a media shoot. The kids found it rather entertaining that they had their hair and make-up professionally done – and we all got a laugh when dad had his nose powdered (yes, we’re saving that photo for later use). Si and Noelle also realized that helping with a photo/commercial shoot isn’t quite as simple (or as exciting) as they had imagined. It was a full day’s “work” and when we were through, we were all exhausted. (I’m most certain the photographers/camera men were ready for us to head out after some of the *impatient kiddo* behavior we demonstrated, hee hee.) Despite some fits and unpleasant attitudes (mostly the kids, ha) it was another great memory – including many laughs – aboard the Royal Gorge Route Railroad.
