Oktoberfest 2009

I'm jumping all over the place, but I've got tons of pictures that I want to post and they're lacking any organization, so that's the way it goes sometimes. I've been spending a lot of time with family lately, the new baby accounts for that but perhaps also a bit of fall nesting. So it was Sunday when my parents called and said we were going to Oktoberfest at the German American Society in El Cajon.

Always the best Oktoberfest for it's authenticity, we arrived early enough to get a whole table, enjoy some tasty German beers, some giant bavarian pretzels, and just enjoy the festive vibe. Nadia was there, at 6 days I'm pretty sure she was the youngest in attendance. I loved the lady who saw me drinking a beer and asking if I was nursing. Ha. The obvious benefit of being an aunt. It was also great running into some friends...Blaine and Jill have a daughter named Josephine (with leiderhosen) just a little younger than Johanna, so they enjoyed the oom-pah-pah music on the dancefloor together.

Family time ended (at least my family left), but Jake came to hang out, as did Kristian and Kerrie and friends, so we ended up staying at Oktoberfest for some time.

After Oktoberfest, Jake told me about a party for Craig's birthday, so we ended up at Crown Point celebrating and enjoying a desolate beach to ourselves as everyone busted out guitars and bongos for some singalong action. Good times for sure. Not a bad way to spend a Sunday.
