Logan's 8th birthday

Logan finally turned 8 on June 27th!  He's been looking forward to this for a long time, especially because that means he gets to be baptized.  We did a big party for this special birthday.  This picture was taken on his actual birthday with just our family.

The big birthday party was on the day before his birthday (since the actual day was Sunday) at a pool in my friends subdivision.  Of course it was just my luck that they removed all the furniture from the community pool (because of vandalism) a few days before his party.  So our tables/chairs were towels on the ground. :)

Bryce and Aaron Bloom (a good friend of our family).

Tubby hanging out in the stroller, eating his pizza.  Love spaghetti sauce faces! :)

The wind decided it was a great day to blow, so our decorations were haggard by the time we were done.

Logan, Landon, and Jake Bloom (one of Logan's best friends whose family moved away but came back to visit and come to the party), having fun in the sun.

Some of
the party kids. :)

Logan loves Calvin & Hobbes, and this is his first attempt at drawing one of his favorite characters. Can you tell who it is?? :)

Bryce videotaped Logan blowing out candles and opening presents, but took no pics.  Oh well.  Logan got his first set of scriptures with his name engraved on them.  He was very excited about that!  He actually spends time reading them and looking up topics to study.  He also got the Lego Harry Potter x-box game that they've been looking forward to for a long time.  He got lots of cool presents from friends too.  It was a fun birthday party and I think Logan felt very special.  Logan loves being 8!  Eight years has gone by fast, and it's been fun watching Logan grow and learn.  I love that he's excited to have been baptized and participate in the important ordinances of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  We definitely have our crazy moments with him, but we really love his strong, excited spirit and his enthusiasm for life.  Happy birthday Logan, we love you and are glad you're in our family!!

Happy Birthday Logan!! That is so exciting to turn 8 and get baptized. Avery is already asking me how much longer till she turns 8. It looks like you had a fun B-day party too! I was just looking through your other pictures and I loved the ones of Marlee putting butterfly clips in Masen's hair! It's a good thing you have a girl in the mix to balance out the testosterone at your house :) Hope you are doing well Nettie! Say hi to everyone in CG for me.

Not that you typically have a mad face, but he looks so much like you, Nettie. :) So glad you had a wonderful time, with the family reunion, baptism, and traveling.
