Logan turned 10 this week!!! The big 1-0!
He doesn't like cake, so I made him an ice cream cake out of ice cream sandwiches and Mint Chocolate Chip ice cream (his favorites).
But, we're getting ahead of ourselves, here. Nothing, I mean, nothing, comes before PRESENTS!
So, apparently 10 is not the age where you start to care less about presents. But that's okay, 'cause he's still my
little big boy.
He got a new watch, a "grown-up, not a kids watch," with Indiglo. He's super excited about that and has not taken it off since he got it.
and a couple of Lego toys. Taylor bought Logan that orange Hot Wheels car, with her own money. She was just as excited about Logan's birthday as he was.
Well, almost. We also watched the Lego Movie, went to the library, then out for pizza and we watched some Tour de France. Logan's been watching it with James this year and they've had lots of fun watching it together.
I think Logan mostly watches it for the crashes and Peter Sagon. That's Logan's favorite rider, for some reason. He has the Green Jersey, which means he leads the sprint competion right now.
There are several jerseys of different colors, which the leaders of the different competions within the Tour de France get to wear. The White Jersey goes to the Best Young Rider, the Yellow Jersey to the Overall Leader, the red Polka Dot Jersey to the King of the Mountains, etc.
Logan has pulled out a tee-shirt in each color (except polka dot), so he can wear his "jersey" each day. Sometimes multiple jerseys, multiple times a day.
Anyway, he told us it was the "best birthday, ever!" I'm glad he thinks so. I try to make it a special day. James had the afternoon off, so we were able to spend most of the day together as a family.
Logan really is a great boy. He is concerned about others, wants people to be happy and not feel bad. He is thoughtful and caring. He's also very clever, has a great imagination and memory.
He loves climbing on rocks and driftwood.
It's what going to the beach is all about, as far as Logan is concerned.
He also loves to build with Legos, figuring out ways to make Lego sets he doesn't have, out of the Legos he does have. He likes to think about how things work. He loves science, reading and going to the library. He also likes to draw. He's very talented.
And we are so blessed to have this amazing boy in our family.
We love you, our 10-year-old boy!
