The Pumpkin Patch

Alan's preschool recently went on a field trip to a local pumpkin and Logan, Bryce, and I thought it would be fun to tag along. Alan was having way to much fun to be in many pictures, but Bryce and Logan didn't have a choice.

First all the kids got to go over to the $2 pumpkin patch and pick any pumpkin they wanted. Alan ran way to the back and carried out the biggest $2 pumpkin he could find (and carry).
With a little help from yours truly Logan and Bryce picked out this little cutie (the first pumpkin Logan picked was already rotting on one side).

Next we headed over to the hay maze. I am pretty sure the kids couldn't have gotten lost in it if they wanted to. But they did have fun going through the maze over and over again.

After that we went over to story time. Alan is the one in the green shirt. By this time Logan was very sad. He kept asking to go home. It was super fun. (do you here a tone to that?)

Luckily after story time we had snack time and Logan perked right up.

Here is Alan with his class. They played a few games and read Spookley the Square Pumpkin before they were done.

We stayed and played a little longer.

Brycey LOVED checkin' out all the pumpkins (and gourds).

Happy Halloween from my cute boys!

Celebrating Logan's Birthday

I would like to apologize in advance for the hundreds of pictures in this post. I seriously took over 250 pictures of Logan's birthday celebration so I really did pair down the pictures quite a bit.

This year for Logan's birthday we decided it would be fun to have his party at the zoo. We checked in advance so we could get there in time for the elephant show. It was great! Did you know they can feed an elephant a whole pineapple? And the little baby elephant Zuri was sooo cute.

Checking out the elephants

Speaking of cute babies... have you seen this kid?

Logan wanted a zoo train cake with an elephant, giraffe, and hippo. I aim to please.

I love the little monkey driving the train.

After the elephant show, we did cake and ice cream and presents over at the peacock pavilion.

Then we took a little stroll through the primate building on the way over to the new carousel.

Then we spent some time walking around checking out the animals. It was such a great day to see animals. They were all out and easy to see.

I know the kids look a little crazy in this picture, but they were pretending to be tigers. Well Bryce wasn't, I think he was actually a little worried.

After looking at all the animals we took a fun ride on the zoo train.

And finished up the day playing at the park.

Brycey actually fell asleep before we even got to the train. He missed his morning nap for the party, but he was a pretty good sport about it.

On Logan's actual birthday we had a picnic dinner and birthday cake at Logan's favorite park.

The kids had a ton of fun playing and then we went home and opened presents.

I think we all had a lot of fun celebrating Logan. Happy Birthday Buddy!!! We love you!!!

Logan is 3!!!

Can you believe my Baby Bogan is 3!!???

He really isn't a baby anymore. Just ask him. He isn't even a little boy... He is a big boy. I guess that happens when they become a big brother.

He is seriously just an awesome kid and I love him like crazy. He is so sweet and gives the best hugs.

He makes the cutest, funniest faces. He is just a super funny kid. I don't think a night goes by that he doesn't make us all laugh at the dinner table.

He is also extremely charming. It is like there is a little twinkle in his eye and another in his smile that just kinda sucks you in.
He holds his own playing with the big kids. He loves trains, cars, dinosaurs, coloring, and books. I think the sight of Logan cruising down the side walk on his trike is possibly one of the cutest things I have ever seen.

Logan loves being a big brother, he loves playing with Alan and the other boys in the neighborhood. His favorite color is yellow and he loves animals.
