I apologize for being late in telling you about this fun family thing to do for this year...but you can do it next year! :) I'm talking about the North Pole Express in Owosso. Our family took the trip back in 2005 and had a great time. Tickets are sold out for the train ride this year but start planning for next year! Here's their website to find out more! These are a couple of photos I found from our trip.
