Logan's started lying lately. It's pretty easy to know when he isn't telling the truth. I will call him on it, but it didn't do much good. So we watched Pinocchio. Ever sense when I ask "Is that a lie Logan, or did you really brush your teeth?" he will feel his nose and tell me the truth. I feel a little bad, but it's extremely funny.
We had a fun weekend! It was so nice to have Monday off, because we had a lot of work to get done, and wanted to squeeze some fun in too! Friday Dave had a dentist appointment in the afternoon, so we didn't really get to do much, even though he got off work early. We did go to the hardware store and picked up supplies for our weekend project. Dave also picked up a few Birthday gifts for me (per my request).
Saturday we planned to start bright and early on a fence for our back yard, but it was pouring rain. Dave still got in a 2 hour run. He's training for a half marathon and didn't think it was raining too bad, but came back totally soaked! We hung out all morning and half of the afternoon waiting for the rain to clear up. When it finally did, we dug the holes for the posts, laid the cement and the poles. By then the clouds came back out, so we decided to put off the remaining work until Monday.
That night we decided to watch a movie with Logan and make some Delicious popcorn. Dave introduced us to The Flight of the Navigator (a cheesy 80's movie he grew up loving). Logan was VERY impressed with the aliens, space ship, fire works, and the dog. His expressions were hilarious to watch through out the movie.
Sunday we had a pretty casual day. We went on a walk around the block, played in the sand box, and swung on our swing and hammock. Nothing too much, but we had a relaxing day.
Monday morning Dave got up early and took Logan on a bike ride with his parents while I took Dustin shopping at the Saver's 50% off sale. We all had fun, and I was able to score some killer deals. I love the thrift store. That afternoon we finished the fence, and tidied up the house.
That evening we had a family from the ward over for a BBQ. They moved into our ward (and down the street from us) a few months ago and we've been meaning to have them over. They have 3 boys and one girl (ages 1, 3, 5, and 8). Logan had a blast chasing the boys around the yard and house! They played with balls, cars, colored with chalk, and beat each other with swords (pool noodles). We got to visit and get to know each other better.
Tuesday morning at 7:30 a friend dropped her two boys off for an hour so she could drop her car off at the shop. Logan and the boys had fun chasing them around and building towers out of his blocks. Being around so many little boys over the past few days makes me realize what I'm in for over the next few years. It's a lot of energy and running around, but fun.
That afternoon we pulled out the pool and did some swimming. Dustin decided he does not love swimming. I think it was the cold water, because he loves the bath. Logan had fun.
Wednesday we also went to the Murray Splash Pad with a friend from the ward. The actual splash pad wasn't running, but the lazy river was, so we waded and splashed around in there. It hasn't been cleaned for the season, so it was pretty slimy, but the boys didn't care. We finished our trip off with some sliding and called it good! According to Logan "We've had a long week. But it was a fun week too."
