Polar Express

Last Fall, 2016, we took a trip up North to ride The Polar Express via the Grand Canyon Railroad.

Besides the horrible migraine I got on the way up there, most likely because of the elevation, it was a great time. We had dinner at a diner, had peppermint schnapps to put in our hot chocolate, got our tickets punched, got Christmas bells, heard the story and saw Santa Claus!

We had the whole diner to ourselves and the food was great, atmosphere was cute and good times…

The next day we we had breakfast in Williams, walked around some trains and stopped at The Flintstones before heading back home. We had a great time!

Until tomorrow, LAF

Mini Time Machine 

One of my favorite places to visit in Tucson, Arizona is The Mini Time Machine.   If you like miniatures this is your place!  I went a few years ago and then again last Fall.   It seems like they have added more exhibits than the first time I visited.  They also have temporary exhibits which all look interesting.

The artwork is amazing and how they make those tiny little items is beyond me!

They have doll houses, themed rooms, holiday exhibits, and tiny furniture!





They have specially made doll houses, such as this teapot…

One of my favorites was is these ghosts in honor of Halloween …
