The Beach Boys, well two of them

One of my first dates with my husband was a Beach Boys concert at the University of Utah special events center.  It was so much fun!  They were going to be at Tuachan in St. George at the end of April so we decided it would be a great way to celebrate our 41st wedding anniversary.

We invited Glen's sister, Wylene, and her husband, Leioni, to join us.

It was a rainy evening but Wylene, the ever loving Disneyland fan, pulled out her Disneyland ponchos to help keep us dry.

Glen, Wylene, and Leioni all grew up in Hawthorne, California just like the Beach Boys.  They knew that beach balls were a must so we each smuggled one in under our jackets.

After a lot of hot air . . .

they were launched much to the delight of the crowd.  Mike Love even punched one back into the crowd later in the evening.

This outdoor venue sits in a red rock canyon and is a great place to be.

We enjoyed ourselves so much, rain and all.  There just may be two of the originals touring with this group, but the extra band mates were true musicians.   It was a bit like the Beach Boys on steroids.  They also played straight thru for over and hour and a half.  Who needs an intermission when it is raining?  Great evening with a great date and with one of my favorite couples!
