My baby turned 5 today! And we celebrated alllll day long – fishing in the morning, soccer games for everyone, Hurricane Harbor, a water balloon party with Primary friends, and a friend’s 40th birthday party with a few more friends. And we still haven’t even done presents and cake for him! There’s always tomorrow..Logan at five is energetic, enthusiastic, and exhausting. He is always always counting things, adding things, spelling things, or asking how to add or spell things. All. Day. Long. He loves school but occasionally gets overwhelmed with all the coloring. He loves riding his bike—fast and furious. He loves babies (especially his twin baby girl cousins), sports, legos, books, and bugging his siblings. His extreme curiosity and lack of impulse control can make this mama crazy at times, but he’s also an excellent snuggler and loves to tell me how much he loves me (with all of his hearts). He’ll eat most things, and especially loves cheeseburgers, tacos, watermelon, candy, and ketchup. He regularly asks me to put peanut butter on his ham and cheese sandwich, which I refuse. It is so fun to watch him learn and grow and love! Every single day I can’t believe how lucky I am to be his mom. Happy birthday, little Logan! ️

This little ride-along attachment means that we can finally go on family bike rides! Happy day! It breaks my heart that my babies are growing up so fast, but we’re also entering a whole new world of fun things that we couldn’t do with babies. It’s bittersweet for sure.

This all-abilities park had monkey bars short enough for Logan to do by himself! That’s enough to keep me coming back. And the castle design is pretty rad, too. There’s even a spray zone, a huge tot area, and a frisbee golf course right nextdoor! How had we never been here before??

Yesterday we took the whole family BMX biking in Napa for the afternoon. It was so much fun! And free. Pretty sure Logan had the MOST fun—he spun the track at least 20 times on his tiny balance bike. Hailey finally got the hang of it right at the end (after some crashes, tears, lots of encouragement, and a toy bribe), and Rush was a pro right out the gate. I even got a little bit of air! #northbaybmx

There were lots of goodbyes for my parents in August before they left for their mission, but this Sunday was the last one. They came up for church, lunch, pie and one last hug. Goodbyes are so hard! We’re going to miss them so much but we can’t wait to hear about their adventures in Mexico!

The first weekend of soccer came in with a bang! Games at 11am, 12pm, and 1pm, at two different locations and Jake was out of town and it was a thousand degrees outside. We signed up for this because we LIKE it, right???

Logan now goes to school with the big kids! And I now have almost 3.5 kid-free hours every day. Hallelujah!.I can’t believe my kids are old enough to all be in school! I’m so excited for all the new things they’ll learn, the ways they’ll grow, and the friends they’ll make. And I’m so excited to get stuff done every day while they’re gone!
