A while back I decided that our family needed to go to the Piano Guys Christmas concert in Salt Lake. Mom and Dad willingly watched Ben for us and we made an evening of it.
We went to City Creek and had dinner and walked around a bit...
Then we went to Temple Square.
I used to go every year with my family when I was a kid. I realized we had only ever taken our kids once and that was when they were so young. I was glad to have a chance to experience it with them again...
Then we took TRAX down to the Vivint Smart Home Arena for the concert.
Most of us were excited to be there and those who weren't consoled themselves by buying ice cream and popcorn to consume. In all seriousness, we knew Matt would love it once it got going but in the mean time, he acted like he wasn't that enthused ;)
It was so amazing! Even Matt got super into it :) It really was a fantastic show...such great talent and enjoyment.

Here is Jon doing his upside down, backward and cross handed song...
Before their standing ovation, they closed with their version of Fight Song/Amazing Grace...one of my favorites! It was so neat when they had actual bagpipers come out on stage!
Such a wonderful evening with most of the family :)
The next night, I dragged Andy to a Nathan Pacheco concert in Logan.
I think he has such a great voice and seems like a genuinely nice guy as well.
It, too, was a fabulous night. I didn't get many pictures since we were in a rush to get home, having received a phone call in the second half saying that Matt was feeling sick and throwing up :(It is rare that the Bryans ever go to concerts so to have two nights in a row was something quite unusual.
