Once we got up to the train, we looked around for a bit. All of the cars were decorated with lights and decorations. Then the performances started. First Santa Clause came out (there was a stage on one of the train cars), and then a band. Mara was happy up until that point...but once the music started, she got scared (hence the look in the first picture!). She's always a little unsure about loud noises or sounds that she's not familiar with! We hung out for a little while, but it was really cold, and since Mara wasn't exactly enjoying the music anyway, we decided to head back to the car after awhile. By the time we got there, we were all definitely ready for some warmth!
I think in a year or two, Mara will appreciate things like this a lot more, but it was still fun to take her and watch her reaction!
