I told the girls that after we dropped Tommy off at Astro Camp we would go home and pack a picnic lunch and head downtown for a free event put on by a local radio station; Disney Days. It was at the Gallivan Center. Since I had never been to the Gallivan Center, nor did I even really know where it was at, other than downtown. I also knew that I would have to pay to park, and drive in downtown traffic. So as I was looking online for how to get there and were to park, etc. I saw that there was a Trax stop right in front of it. I thought that would be fun to ride the train, and we would only need to transfer once, from one train to another. So I surprised the girls with a train ride. It actually was probably cheaper for us to ride the train vs paying for parking and gas. Plus it was a fun treat and relaxing for me. First we got on the Frontrunner, which is a bigger train that goes around 60 mph. Then when we got into downtown we had to transfer to Trax which is a smaller trolley type train. The kids have ridden Trax before, (we ride it to the U of U Football games, did you hear we are now part of the Pack-10!) But the Frontrunner, the girls had only ridden once before, on opening day and it was packed!
I did struggle with my bigger stroller on Trax, but I was so thankful for some nice people to help me, and people even moved to allow me their seats so we could all sit close. A nice young man even held my stroller, since I was holding Tyler, so it didn’t go flying down the aisle of the train.
They had a bounce house and slide.
They had dancers, and then did interactive dancing.
They had a really cool waterfall.
We got to see where they film the news.
We had a great picnic. We “Got Milk” mustaches!
Whew what a day.
