Logan and his GIRLS! That is what we call them anyway. Every morning after breakfast we ask Logan if he would like to say " Goodmorning" to his girls and he runs straight to the garage door. First he waves quickly as he runs past the chickens in there box and then it is off to his dirtbike to tap on it and say "rideabike" ( as in, " Can I ride my bike?"). These days Daddy has been working so much mommy has had to say no, but luckily for me, he can easily be distracted still with the dirtbike in hand. I know that isn't going to last very long.
 He knows to be gentle with them, but sometimes he needs reminding. The chickens weren't too sure about the lawn so they weren't moving much and he thought it would be funny to chase and kick at them. Yes, I know, kicking, yeah he is all Toddler and all BOY now. By the way he doesn't like to be told No either.

We are trying to enjoy how much he loves to cuddle and love these days cause we know that they are coming to a fast hault, where they will be far and few throughout a day. So at the end of each day we, mommy and daddy, take turns tucking him in at night because he still loves to rest his head on our shoulders and tuck his arms under his belly just before giving us a kiss and leaning towards his crib telling us he is ready to be put down for the night.

Until next time, we are off to enjoy the Memorial Weekend!!! (and daddy's birthday)

Mother's Day.....Garden and Chickens!!!!

Wow! Has it really been that long since I have posted? Logan has been up to so much. He only wants to be outside, or in the garage staring at his dirtbike or talking to the chickens. That's right we have chickens now.

Well it all started on the Saturday of Mother's Day weekend, Mitchell was at work so Logan and I made plans to spend the day with Nana planting her garden. This way I could have some special time with my mom! Just the two of us.....well three I mean four of us. We were lucky enough for not only Logan to be there but also AJ! Logan's best buddy. He taught Logan how to go down the slide, this is for the very first time. Finally he was able to go down sitting up right instead of on his tummy, that was a lot of fun, but it was easier to go down on his belly.

They got bored with that after awhile so Logan played on the motorcycle while AJ and I looked at all the wildlife and planted tomatoes. He was sure impressed with the big toad under ground......can you see his big eyes in the hole? He wasn't too sure about the birds nest inside the ivy, I think because he couldn't really see the babies.

 Then Vo came home with a big surprise for Nana and I, the boys loved the chickens SO much, but didn't quite understand why they couldn't hold them. On Sunday, Mother's Day Logan and Mitchell surprised me with Roses, Champagne a homemade fruit salad, canadian bacon and eggs (the food list is for Tante Lauren, we all know how much she is enjoying her food right now) then after nap time we went out to pick up our baby chicks at Nana and Vo's house, after daddy built the proper box for them to stay in at our house.


A day with Mitchell home just isn't complete without Logan asking "ridabike?" ( ride the bike, is what that means) So of course I got to watch my boys pop a wheely, which you can tell from Logan's face is the BEST thing EVER! He truly loves his dirtbike and his Daddy!

I will keep you posted on the garden, it is so big and growing like crazy now. As I mentioned we do nothing else but hang out in the backyard, so alot has been done back there. I will take some photos and get you all up to date.

Cinco De Mayo

Cinco De Mayo! A fabulous day for my FIRST peanut butter and jelly sandwich, and I loved it! Of course my dirtbike rider had to enjoy with me.

Then it was off to Benicia for some family fun and making memories with my partner Aj and Auntie B! First we stopped at Randy's for Mommy and Auntie B to have a margarita then it was off to the bounce house and grass for Aj and I to have our fun. I met a little girl who shared her doll with me. I gave it lots of kisses, the doll that is.

My many faces.......

Kiss goodbye, "tito kissing" (blow kiss in Italian, I am sure the spelling is wrong)

Thank you Auntie B and Aj, can't wait until next week, maybe Vo and Nana will go too?

May Day for Logan

Daddy was off for 6 full days! So it was alot of fun in the backyard, in the water, riding my dirtbike and then he surprised mommy and I, and took us out to the Airport so we could see the planes up close and personal.

First it was sprinkler time in the morning after Daddy was finished watering the garden. I just couldn't get enough......

Then of course there was dirt bike riding, which actually happens everyday when daddy's home. Cause I just can't get enough of my dirtbike. But this time it was extra special cause daddy taught me all about the throttle. So now I know just what to do.

See!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I found the throttle.....

The airplanes go over our house alot throughout the day, I think were in the fly zone or something. So it was only fitting to actually go watch them take off and land at the airport. I couldn't take my eyes off of them.

After about an hour I had, had enough! See me covering my ears?
