For Ben's Birthday, in October, I bought us tickets to go see one of our favorite bands, Lady Antebellum, in concert, in Salt Lake.
The concert was supposed to be in November, but it was postponed until this last weekend, so we celebrated much later than anticipated, but it was worth it. The concert was awesome!
My mom drove up to watch our children, and it was nice not to worry about them. We went to dinner at Olive Garden, and reminisced about our memories of eating there when Ben and I would visit back and forth before his mission. It seems like yesterday, but also, it doesn't. Kind of crazy!
The concert was in the Salt Palace, and we were able to shuttle over there.
The concert started at 8:00, but the two singers that opened for them (who were great), took a while, so Lady Antebellum didn't come out until 10:00!
I don't really know how to describe it. The music was crazy loud, the band was absolutely unbelievable, the singers were awesome, of course, and the extra things they did made it go from completely awesome, to unbelievably amazing! It was so much fun!
We are now hooked on this whole concert thing, and we are looking into other bands that we love, to see when they will be here next.
Happy Birthday Ben! Anything is fun with you.
