Night of Awesomeness

You can play some music related to the post while you read. And just for the record, Alexander suggested the title when I couldn't think of one.

I took the kids to Acoustic Explosion at BYU. I was the oldest one (by far) and my children were the youngest ones minus one baby that was there. I wanted to go because The Lovecapades were playing and I've only heard them online and their lead vocal singer, Colin Rivera, was the MC at BYU Unplugged that I went to a few months ago. When we got there, but before we found a spot on the lawn, I spotted Ruth, one of the young single adults from our old Spanish ward so I went to say hello. She introduced me to her boyfriend, who it turns out plays with The Lovecapades. How fun!

The show opened with a group called MayDay. I couldn't find anything online about them.

If you look really hard, you can see Ruth and her musician boyfriend in the right upper corner on a bench. Accidental spy cam.

Then Steven Stucki played.

Then the Lovecapades were up. Lots of fun!

Then we ran from BYU to Guru's in Provo to see J.Wride. Do you remember my blog post about them? It was the first time I got to see them live.

Clay Summers opened.

I won't post J.Wride's music since I did before, but it's great. They were energetic and it was fun to watch them jammin. Elisa said they were her favorite of the night. If you look hard, you can see a poster for Nikki Forova on the board behind the guys. Happy listening!


  1. You are one cool mom! Guru's in Provo is our new favorite place to eat. Their sweet potato fries are to die for, and the live music is fun too. :)

  2. That looks like fun times!
    The weather looked like it was cooperating too.

    The kids are certainly getting bigger. They must think it is awesome to have mom do such cool things with them.

  3. Julie wrote exactly what I was thinking -- Seriously, you've got to be the coolest mom ever! I've never been to any of those places ... I'll need to investigate more live music in my area for the kids.... maybe when they get older?

  4. Looks like all 4 of you had a good time!

  5. This reminds me of many happy days when I went WITH the kids to concerts of their choosing. Good for you! SOOOOOOOO fun - such a positive for the whole family!

  6. Looks like you had a blast! Now I'm in the mood to go to the park and listen to some music. :)

  7. What a night of awesomeness! It's so good that you do these activities with your kids. Good for you. Good for the kids.
    Great music.


Japanese Cheesecake

My son Alex, who was in Japan for 2 years, has asked me a couple of times to make Japanese cheesecake. I've never had it before, so I di...
