We did manage to hang around for a while and check things out. We got a pitcher of Warsteiner Premium which is a pretty good German beer and we also got a huge pretzel. There was tons of music and dancing going on as well and they even had amusement park type rides. I've always been a little skeptical about the types of rides that they set up and take down in only a few hours. Is this really safe?
Before Oktoberfest yesterday, we headed down to Riverside and did a 9 mile run. The weather was great and we ran on a path that we hadn't run before. We've come to realize that there are way more trails than we ever thought. As we start training for our marathon, it'll be a great place to do our long runs.
The Sooners had a great showing yesterday and I think we are finally moving in the right direction. Even without our starting quarterback, tight end, and running back, we managed to beat a ranked team at home.
Today we slept in a just relaxed for a little while before heading to the grocery store for our weekly shopping. We've started taking in other stores ads tot Wal-Mart and having them match the price. Up until last week we had never done that before, but it's easy to do and a great way to save money and keep yourself from driving all over town to get the best deals.
After the store we went to the mall for a while and then headed home to watch some football and carve our pumpkin. Right now Beth is in the process of making Apple Sauce Meatballs for dinner and I can't wait. She's made them once before and they were great. Supposedly it's a Lewis family favorite(especially for Mr. Dale).
Here are some pics of Beth making the famous apple sauce meatballs:
On a side note, Stacy played great in her first tournament in Asia. She finished in 7th place at 3 under par. Next week she heads to Korea for her next tournament. I'd give a link for the results but it's all in Japanese so it'd be kind of pointless. Below are a few pics of Stacy in Japan.
