The girls kept asking us what we were going to do the afternoon of the marathon. My Sister and I just kept trying to be vague, but finally the afternoon was upon us and we couldn’t put it off any longer.
I gave the girls a few clues:
1. We are going on a trip within a trip.
2. We are doing something country.
3. It’s epic.
They started guessing: horse back riding? ice skating?
4. It’s once in a lifetime.
5. It’s something we are going to see.
More epic than fireworks.
Lolly’s eyes squinted a bit and her lips pursed and then:
Phoebz could not believe it….Lolly was just stoked that she was the one that figured it out.
Once we got to Lexington from Louisville, I said: There are going to be a LOT of screaming girls there tonight. Phoebe: I’m going tobe one of them!
On the way to checking into our hotel we saw the many many Taylor Swift Vehicles. Holy Cow, it takes a fleet:
It was a great first concert appearance for these little turkeys. Though Jason and I thought Ed Sheeran was absolutely brilliant–he even took our picture during a song, Lolly was super offended by his use of the phrase: Hell Yeah.
Finally Taylor was on in full force. The girls knew all the songs, I knew most of them too. I loved her use of the various stages and flying from one to the other was an unexpected affect. I wanted to buy red sparkly keds after she wore hers to open. Phoebz loved all her monologues between songs….and I loved the creative concepts for some of her bigger hits, her insertion of HEY HO and her dancers. Lolly wore pigtails because she thought that was country. Jason made us wear ear plugs because he’s old.
Thanks Dad for searching for tickets for months and finally finding the exact right experience for us. Taylor Swift Forever.
