Yum . . . Grilled Fish

On my birthday Josh grills fish for me, even though he doesn't like seafood! He even went online and found a great Marinade and prepared it the night before, what a great guy!

On Friday Josh planned a fabulous dinner with his family for me which included my favorite things. Grilled fish, a shrimp cocktail, strawberries, pineapple, tossed salad, and angel food cake! The funny thing is no one likes fish in their family but me (and Macquel, my niece, together we enjoyed the shrimp!). On my birthday is the only time I don't feel bad asking for fish. There were also hamburgers for the non-fish lovers.

I had a great birthday! I got to go to the park with Logan and Josh took me to lunch and shopping, also what a great guy to endure me trying on clothes!

I got my haircut a couple of weeks ago, and I haven't taken very many pictures of it, so this is one is pretty good of the back :)

Macquel, Beth, and Ashley having fun with my camera.

In the morning Josh gave me this sustain pedal for our computer piano keyboard!

Really the best present of all, my little Logan.

Reason #83

I love being married to Josh. So, I don't actually have a numbered list, but if I did this would make it.

Do you prefer a certain side of a slice of bread? Even subconsciously? One day, Josh and I realized we prefer the opposites sides of a slice of bread, and we always started eating the side we preferred least. Ever since, when we have sandwiches we slice them through the middle and share. We call it tops and bottoms. It is a simple thing, but it is so nice to gladly give away the side of bread you least prefer.

The Days of Summer

We visited Logan (the city) this weekend to help my sister move. (We managed to sneak in some Tiny Spicy Chicken and a quick trip to the creamery!) Logan (the child) played in the pack-n-play for awhile while we were moving things, but eventually decided he was done. Luckily Chrissy had a little water table that I had seen as things were being unloaded from the truck. I filled it up with water and let Logan go to town. He got his clothes soaking wet, but he had so much fun. It kept him busy for a really long time.

Logan loves the water. We went swimming on Thursday and he played in the pool for two hours straight. He didn't even mind getting sprayed or squirted in the face from various pool toys and things.
Logan was able to meet his cousin Akasha for the first time. He was also able to see his other cousins Katelyn and Peyton. He wanted to hug the babies over and over again. He loves other kids!

If you want it, Here it is.

Logan always wants whatever we have when we are eating or getting ready to eat, even when he doesn't know what it is. He will put out his hand and say "Uh, uh, uh, uh". So I had a can of Fresca soda and I poured a little in a cup and let him have a sip. His reaction is hilarious! Although, I am not going to make a habit of giving my one year old soda pop. (His favorite word to say is "Hi", he says it in the movie)

When I need a few minutes where Logan is slightly confined I will stick him in the walker. The other day I went to put something away and I came back and he decided he was going to try to get out himself! He had one leg all the way out. He thought he was pretty funny!

Not Quite . . .

We are just loving the summer. Logan especially loves to be outside and will crawl to the front door and stand up and grab the door knob! He was able to play with his cousins over the weekend at a park and his grandparents this week. He never sits still, not even for a second.

Also, over the weekend he took two steps, not to his mother or father mind you, but to his cousins! Josh and I have been trying to have him walk to us for weeks with no real progress. His cousin Ashley puts out her hands and he takes two steps on his own to her! Then yesterday when my parents were here we were all trying to get him to walk and he started taking a few steps at a time. The most he took was 10! He is on the way to full walking status. I know walking just means getting into more things, but I am ready to not have to carry him around everywhere. He is starting to be quite the chunker! And I think he may qualify for tallest child that can't walk. We go around town and these little, tiny, petite children, probably half of Logan's height, are walking around! It is exciting, anyway, first steps and all!
