Still trying to catch up with the summer activities and this post should do it.....Here is what kept us busy in August and September.
We started August with a girls' night out to one of my favorite plays, Wicked. Before the play, we went to Cheesecake Factory for a yummy dinner.
Such cute girls I have!
I really love going to plays and Abby enjoys them too; glad she could come with us!
You can't go to Wicked without the traditional pic by the sign.
We love to go up Big Cottonwood Canyon for an end of summer dinner. Everyone in the valley had the same idea and it was packed! We finally found a great, little secluded spot and enjoyed a super easy dinner of Subway sandwiches! We took a nice walk around the lake and saw a super huge moose not more than twenty feet away from us.
Cashe loves Ben!
It was time to say good bye to summer and head off to school. Can't believe my boy is in 9th grade and officially a freshman in high school. I know the next few years will fly. Ben is getting up super early to go to Seminary, so our first day of school picture was snapped after school. He will have a busy year as he serves as student body vice-president, plays in Symphonic Band, studies hard in honors English and continues to master Espanol!
September bring school and one of my favorite activities, the State Fair. Yes, it's over priced, kind of ghetto and smelly in the animal barns, but I love it.....
Love this picture; it looks like our friend the goat was posing with the boys!
Cashe wasn't so sure he wanted to get much closer to this particular goat.
They have a cute kids farm and the kids pretend to do all sorts of farm chores. Love Cashe in his cute apron.
Cashe "feeding" the animals.
Even though Abby and Ben are a bit old for the kids' farm, they managed to have some fun in the chicken coop.

While Cashe didn't love the goats, he thought the baby pigs were okay!
Last night with Lindsi at work and Nick at the BYU game, we were able to spend a fun night with Cashe. He loves his Papa and sat on his lap and watched the game.
But the best end of summer news was that our little family is continuing to grow!!!!! Lindsi and Nick are having a boy due February 15, 2013. We are so so excited; three boys in two years. Can't wait for Cashe, Diesel and Canon to run around Nana's house; it's going to be a party.
So Lindsi and Nick had an ultrasound and wanted to have a gender reveal party. Here we are with our guesses and Ben was the only one correct. I pick a girl every time, and I'm always wrong.
Kristi and Diesel with their pick, but at the last minute, Kristi changed her mind to boy.
The Barber's right before the big reveal!
And.....blue balloons it is. Yahoo....cannot wait for Canon to get here. We love boys!
And that does it for the Pugmire Summer of 2012. I hate to see summer go, but look forward to all the birthdays, our girls' trip to NYC, the holidays and everything else.
