The girls were ecstatic about the train option, especially K who is a really big fan of all things trains. I have to admit that her obsession with trains is a new thing for me especially since Ave never really showed this much interest in them, but I guess to each their own, and I should just enjoy her love of all things choo choo.
So we bought our tickets and off we went to board the train and of course found seats on the top level which Ave says is where you have to sit every time you ride the train.
Now I should also mention that along with the recent snow, Mother Nature has also treated us to a pretty sever drop in temperatures. So needless to say it was cold, and if you asked A how cold I am sure he would have some phrase remembered from his childhood about freezing the "B's" off some animal/person or whatnot and he would be right. Even being as bundled up as we could be, it was still really really cold.
Luckily we were able to warm up by first eating dinner at The Gateway and then by getting on to the Trax and heading up to Temple Square. The lights were beautiful, at least from the little bit that what we were able to see. There was something about being out in the cold that seemed to trigger little K's bladder and she ended up needing to use the bathroom more than usual. So after taking care of that little business a few times, just as we were getting ready to take our first picture with the lights in the background, they shut them off. Guess you could say we closed down the place.
Luckily for us there were still some lights left on in the plaza in between Temple Square and The Church Office Bldgs, so we were able to get a few pictures there and I have to say that the little floaty lights on the infinity pond were beautiful to see.
