The State Fair

This weekend we went to the State Fair with our friends. We went last year and had a great time, so we thought it would make for a fun night. We were wrong. It made for a Fan-freaking-tastic time! We looked at fun booths, walked on water in giant bubbles, won contests, tried fried scorpion, rode giant yellow slides, and ate horrible, terrible, Delicious food!

Brenden entered a pull-up contest, and won a sweet hat from the marines!

We opted for a cute family picture with the giant pumpkins. I wanted to take one home and carve a huge jack-o-lantern, but I couldn't think how to fit it in the car and still have room to drive home. So the pumpkins stayed.

Tiff and I were pro's. We walked all over that water, and slipped, fell, and rolled all over it too.

Hello Mr. Goat! Brenden and Tiff made a new friend.

Porter and Kit ate a fried scorpion. Porter ate the head and body and Kit ate the tail. Gross!!!!

Porter told us that he needed some ice cream to wash down the creepy-crawly, so we got the mega bowl!

What fair isn't complete without deep fried bacon stuffed Twinkies, deep fried snickers bars and deep fried pb&Js?!

This is a video of our amazing feat: walking on water.

Get me to the Church preview

Have you noticed how I'm totally into videos right now?! I figured out how to record on my phone and transfer them so I will probably continue to post them. But they are super fun, so I'm not apologizing. Anywho, this is a little preview from a show that I'm working on currently. I'm doing 'My Fair Lady' at Hale Center Theatre. It is going to be a fantastic show! I had my fitting for costumes yesterday, it took an hour and a half, but it was worth it. The costumes are beautiful!!! Sorry I don't have any previews of them, I forgot to take my phone into my dressing room to snap a few shots. But here you have us dancing and kind of (we were so concentrated on the dance that we forgot sometimes) singing to 'Get me to the Church.' It was the first night learning it so it is still a little rough. For example, I don't do a lift that I'm supposed to because my partner's back hurting, and we stop the music half way through and then it starts again. But watch the whole thing because we do a fun circle cannon and a cool little hand jive. I hope you all get tickets and come see it!!!

It's a Bird, It's a plane, It's a Doodlephin!

We took the puppies to West Valley Cities 'Dog Days of Summer.' They clean their pool out once a year, so before they drain it, they let the dogs go play in it for a day. the dogs LOVE it! And, quite frankly, so do I. It is so fun to play in the water with them, although, it's very important to go early as the water gets pretty nasty. This is a video of us first letting them go. Puck is so funny, he keeps trying to leap through the water instead of swimming. He looks like a doodlephin! Hope you enjoy!
