Former U.S. President George H.W. Bush and his wife, Barbara Bush, were spotted over the weekend in Galveston, taking in lunch and a show.

Bush and his wife were spotted Sunday dining at the Pelican Club in Gaido's restaurant and at The Grand 1894 Opera House in downtown Galveston for The Oak Ridge Boys concert.

Jim McGrath, a spokesman for the Bushes, confirmed the couple was in Galveston for the concert, saying the Bushes and The Oak Ridge Boys go way back to Bush's years as vice president, and maybe even before that.

George Bush was elected as the 41st president and served from 1989 to 1993. He is remembered for his dedication to traditional, American values and a determination to make the country a "kinder, gentler nation.
