We’ve long been fans of everything “train” in our home, but the holidays are like the epicenter of holiday train fun, especially in Tarrant County. So board the MamaChallenge train as we load up for train fun during the holidays.  


It’s festive fun in your jammies! The Museum of Science and History continues its tradition of offering extra wintry fun to complement Saturday morning showings of The Polar Express: The IMAX Experience at the Omni Theater. After the movie, enjoy hot chocolate, wintry activities and this holiday classic while in your jammies! Also, make sure to bring your camera and pose with Dynamo the Dinosaur (who is in his PJs' too!)
