The Haunted Railway!

It was SO SO SO much fun!!! When we got there ( WAY TOO EARLY) we sat in the car because it was raining and then I finally went over to get our tickets and the guy there looked twice for our tickets and then the lady looked twice and then she called the depot and they told her they had printed off tickets for us for the night before and that the 7:30 train was sold out (my friend had also bought tickets for her family and we were going to meet them there too). They told us that we could go on the 8:30 train..... Shoot, well it would of been a waste of time and gas to just NOT go on the train so we decided to go find a nice bathroom to use (the one at the park was an outhouse... nuf said)! We got to Provo at like 5 we had already eaten dinner AND had time to take a little drive up the canyon... It was nice, and beautiful, I wish I had taken more pictures, but the rain made that a little difficult... Anyways, my hubs wasn't so excited to wait but we went to Kohl's and looked at beautiful Christmas decorations and used their bathroom ;) and by the time we did that it was time to go back to the park for the train.....
My friend has a little boy who is 8 and she told me that he was freaked out, so I was worried about William.... We get on the train and everybody is happy, and of course the batteries in the camera die right as I was taking a picture of Will in front of the train... :( so we get on the train and they had it all decorated with cobwebs and green lights and over the speaker there is scary music playing, then they start telling "ghost stories" well Matthew was fine because he couldn't really understand what was being said, but William could.... There were "ghosts" on the outside of the train that related to the ghost stories, then they told a story about a girl that had fallen into a well and all the sudden there is a girl holding a bear walking down the train and she was singing "ring around the rosies" and that freaked Will out a little bit. Not to mention that his dad kept randomly yelling and scared the poo out of Will and this other boy that was sitting in his mom's lap after Andrew yelled and he looked like he was about 10 year old....... Then there were lots of scary people coming in the train cars and this scary witch lady came right up to Will and got in his face and asked him if he burned down her house, and he said No all brave like, and then she held up a stuffed cat and asked if he did this to Snowball, and he bravely said No, so she left and after that his face didn't leave my arm.... After it was over he kept asking why we went on that train ride, and why was it so scary? LOL, but he fell asleep with no problem and didn't have any nightmares, so I think it was a success and the funnest Halloween thing we have ever done!!! THANKS VON for the tickets! I hope we get to do "Polar Express" on the Heber Valley Railway this Christmas!!!

that stinks that we were on the same train, and didn't see each other. I am glad that you enjoyed it. We are definitely doing the Polar Express...and we are thrilled.
