Oktoberfest 2009

This weekend we went to Big Bear to join in the fun at the Oktoberfest 2009.  Our college friends Josh and Brianna's family puts on a tradition German Oktoberfest every year.  We had so much fun seeing all the different German costumes several people wore and competing in the games.  All in all it was a great time just celebrating with friends as we welcomed in the beginning of the fall season.

Fun facts about the couples in the picture below:
1. We all met our spouses at Cal Baptist while going to school
2. We were all friends in college
3. We were all involved in some sort of leadership while at CBU
4. We all have sons for our first born (well, Logan isn't born yet, but he should be here within the next 4 weeks!)

The day included a "log sawing" competition... the winners completed the task in 29 seconds

The official time keeper (isn't she cute):

A "tug of war" competition:

A "how long can you hold this cup full of water competition"...

Looks like it wasn't hard for Scott:

The girls didn't last long in this competition...

And a "how far can you carry as many glasses filled with water" competition
... the winner was Bri's sister with 17 glasses!

I brought our camera to practice a little and these are 2 of my favorite pictures of the day:

These boys are known as "the three amigos".  They were all born within 9 days of each other:
