Pictures Galore

I haven't been the best blogger lately (but I am sure you already knew that). I am going to try to be better. The following is a result of my poor blogging habits...a million pictures from the last month that I should have already posted.

On August 24th Logan turned one! It happened so fast. At his one year appointment we found that he was about 24th percentile in weight and 90th in height. He is doing so much now. He can say Momma, Daddy, ball, dog, Bob, woof, Moo, and balloon. He also know over twenty signs now (ASL). He communicates pretty well and continutes to keep us entertained.

Great Grandma Mona sent him these horses for his birthday and he was very excited.

We threw him a little cowboy themed party and a few of our friends from the ward here came. More pictures to come from the party. This is Logan thinking about eating his giant cupcake.

He didn't get too dirty. He wasn't too sure about the frosting.

Here is one of the things we got him for his birthday. Doesn't he look cute at his new table?

He is getting so big!

He insists on feeding himself although not much gets in his mouth as you can see. He loves silverware.

He is still really into watching Baby Signing Time. He asks to watch it like ten times a day.

He is still as in love with Bob as ever. They are best friends and they follow eachother everywhere. A week ago a board fell off of the fence and Bob got out. We looked all around the house and the neighborhood. I was carrying Logan in one arm who was carrying the leash and in my other hand I had Bob's ball. We were squeaking the ball and yelling "Bob" in hope that he would hear us and come back. Logan seemed to understand the situation and with a very serious face he yelled "Bob" with me. It was so cute. I just kept thinking that we had to find Bob for Logan's sake if for no other reason. Don't worry, we found him, he had been picked up by the city.

Mike's sister Lisa came to Waco for a day and brought Ava. She had a conference for work in Dallas so we were fortunate enough to see her. Logan is six days younger than his cousin Ava. They seemed to really enjoy oneanother's company. Logan walked over and kissed Ava on the mouth he liked her so much (although she wasn't sure what she thought about that). I wish that we lived closer so that they could grow up together.

Logan is always busy-busy these days. He recently discovered his love for the hose. It is getting a tiny bit cooler here so we are finally enjoying the outside world again.

He was so happy and had me laughing so hard.

He was soaked and not a tiny bit sad about it.

Grandma and Grandpa Paul came for a visit. It was so nice to spend time with them. Logan especially enjoyed their stay and was heart broken when Grandma Elsie had to return to Utah. We are glad that Grandpa is still here atleast. We hope that he likes his new job here.

Lake Tahoe

We had a blast on our trip to Lake Tahoe. My grandparents have a cabin there so we went there a lot while I was growing up. I love the weather there and all of the fun things to do plus it is always an opportunity to hang out with family.

Logan finally got to meet his great grandparents (my mother's parents, the Carrs).

Here is the cabin, you can't see how great it is from this angle, but you get the idea.

We got to go on the gondolas and chairlifts and one of the ski resorts. (This is Stephanie, Creed, and my Dad on the lifts.)

Here we are at the top.

This is the crew enjoying the view from the top (left to right: Grandpa, Mom, Dad, Stephanie and Creed, Mike and Logan, me, and then Aunt Cheryl).

Here are my handsome boys.

These little cousins will one day be unseperable I'm sure.

My favorite part of the trip was playing on the beach. The water really wasn't too cold and it is so clear and beautiful.

Here are Mom and Dad playing with Logan.

Logan loved playing in the sand.

More beach fun (Creed, Mike, Logan, and Steph).

Logan is quite the little walker these days and insisted on doing his own thing part of the time.

This kid loves the water!

We also enjoyed kayaking, river rafting, playing cards, watching the olympics, Grandma's cooking, and visiting with family. It was an awesome trip but it ended too soon. We'll be back Tahoe!
