Santa ... on the train!

Our friend Gary works for Norfolk Southern and invited us to 
bring the kids to meet Santa!
We all meet up in Gary's office!
Gary and his granddaughter Grace~
Cayden is very happy to see "Mr Gary"!
They are good friends!
There was a big room with a tree and train going around it and
Cayden was excited about that!!
We were told the train was on its way...
We lined up at the yellow tape to wait!
So many friends and loved ones here~
Gary is about to retire and everyone who works for him is
so sorry to see him go!  
Here it comes...
Little ones were so thrilled!

Here comes Santa!

Cayden watches as Mr Gary greets Santa!
Santa is happy to see so many friends!

High fives... all around!
Santa had an elf with him too!
These guys will do anything for Gary!

Danny and Cayden were so excited to go on the train!

Great fun!

They even went up to the tower!
