At about this point, Beth realized that this surprise wasn’t going to be just a day event and that she was going to miss her Christmas Choir Concerts. (We had planned this trip before she even joined choir and there just wasn’t any way we could make it work. We had told her choir teacher about the trip and she kept it a secret for us.) When Beth realized this, she had a bit of a meltdown. She was so excited about being in choir and the concerts – I had been feeling bad all week because of how excited she was about it. After much comforting and promises that it would be worth it, she calmed down. I loved that Joey asked her, “Do you trust me?” She nodded her head through the tears and Joey said, “I promise you that you will love this surprise and it’s going to be okay.” Pretty soon, she had a smile on her face once again.
When we got to the Salt Lake Central Station, we got off the FrontRunner and boarded one of the Trax trains, which took us to another stop where we got off to wait for yet another Trax train.
I’m so excited to share my family’s magical Christmas adventure of 2014 with you!
