September 2012

September each year always have a lot of events for us and it is TONS of fun! This year was no exception. We went to the Greek Festival, the State Fair, and Oktoberfest! The Greek Festival was yummy as always. We were able to eat tasty food and watch some Greek dancers. It was fun! At the State Fair this year Shaun's mom, Michelle, entered a couple of quilts so we were able to go see them being displayed, which we fun. Then we just walked around a checked out all the booths and a bunch of the different entertainment options. One of my favorite things to do is check out the animals, especially the baby pigs! SO CUTE!! Oktoberfest was also a lot of fun. It was nice to get out of the valley for a little bit and to be up in the mountains! I LOVE the mountains and haven't been able to spend much time in them this year so it was great! It was a nice day weather wise and the food and entertainment was great! I am glad we got to go to all of these events!

Also during September, Shaun started a new day job working for a company downtown called Experticity. Shaun started right before the summer party so we were able to go. It was A LOT of fun. The party was up at Jordanelle, so they had boats and other water related activities. Shaun was able to try wakeboarding for the very first time and did a pretty good job. He didn't make it up all the way but he got pretty close. It was fun watching him try. They also had a cotton candy machine, snow cone machine, and a couple big inflatables. Meier's catering came up and provided dinner. It was really a fun event! They sure do know how to throw a party!
