Utah State Fair

I had not been to the Utah State Fair since... maybe the 5th grade. So, when Cruz mentioned that he'd like to go; I was game. Funny thing was that we planned to go Friday after work leave about 5 or so. Then on Friday André called and told me he had 2 extra tickets to the Boys-To-Men concert. Which would be at the fair grounds. Not that I am a big fan of Boys-To-Men, but I am up for almost anything that sounds festive. A fair and a free concert, who would turn that down? Well, Cruz and I had a fun time at the fair. Yummy food, a little shopping, the biggest pumpkin and a Ferris wheel ride were all fantastic. (The sun was setting, as you can see in the picture; when we rode the Ferris Wheel... so pretty.) It was fun to meet up with André, Joel, Katie (Sorenson) and Tyler. It'd been a long time since some of us had hung out together. Only disappointment was the $1 spent to see a giant alligator; he was pretty big, but hard to see through the cage. Other than that the Fair = fun, festive, and pretty much fantastic. I think we'll go again in about 10years. :)

Baby Emma

Announcing sweet little Emma, daughter of Alan and Lisa... and little sister to Kevin. Born 09.09.09, 6 lbs. 2 oz. and 18 inches long. She is so adorable, and little. It's fun to have her in the house (Cruz and I live in the basement). She has quite a bit of hair in the back, and it is dark brown. Looks like her eyes are going to be dark blue. She loves to sleep most of all. (Good for Mommy and Daddy.) She gets the hic-cups often... they are so cute; though I feel bad when she has them. We love her, and are so happy she is here. Welcome to the world Emma.
