The Weekend

Friday night was just like any other Friday night - Caliente with our crew. Everyone wasn't able to make it but we had a good time. We sat & talked until almost 10:00. Not a big deal except we got there at 6:30....

Saturday, Dean & I went to Mass & afterwards headed downtown. Scott & Lydia were running a 5K & Logan was going to do the fun run.

He was ready! He cracks me up. He stretched & did jumping jacks & ran around. We tried to tell him he was going to be worn out by the time the race started but he's 5 so you know how that went. The race was on top of the levee. That's the USS Kid behind Logan. He loved seeing the "big boat" & all the water.

At most of the races they blow an air horn to start the race. Logan is NOT a fan. He made Lydia ask the race director if there was a horn so he would know if he needed to cover his ears.

I LOVE this picture. The expression on his face says it all. He's SOOOO intense when it comes to racing. He gets it from his daddy. He doesn't have a shy bone in his body & was telling everyone that he came in 4th place. We're not exactly sure if that's true but he's got it in his head that he was. I wouldn't be surprised if he was counting people as he passed them.

After his race we watched his mom & dad.

That would be my brother. He finished 2nd in his age group. It's rare that he doesn't do really good in a race. It's so annoying....

Lydia did really well too.

Logan had a good time just sitting on the side cheering for all of the 5K runners. It was so cute to watch him clap & holler. If you remember he had signs for me when I did Rocketchix. Well, when they were getting in the car to go to the race he asked his mama where was his sign? So, note to self, next race make a sign for Logan!

After the race we took him for pizza & he came home & spent the night with us. I slept with him because I was scared he would wake up & not know where he was. I only got hit in the face once which apparently is unheard of when sleeping with him. I woke up Sat. morning nose to nose with a little face saying "tante, wake up" when I asked why he said "because it's morning!".

We brought him to eat beignets for breakfast. A few weeks ago he reminded me of the last time we took him to eat beignets. I have no idea how he remembers because it was a year and a half ago. He told me he wanted to go there again.

We had beignet fingers because they're a little easier to eat & a an order of regular beignets.

Of course he wanted the biggest beignet we had. He had powdered sugar all over him. After that we stopped at the store to do our grocery shopping. Dean thinks Logan will be an attorney when he grows up. The kid is a master negotiator. Dean told him he could have 2 hot wheels & he ended up with 3 and a Hershey bar!

Once we got home we watched some TV & went swimming.

He has absolutely no fear of the water & he's a great swimmer.

He jumped & dove & flipped & then he had Dean jumping with him & throwing him all over the pool. Dean was tired, Logan was not. Sadly, it started raining so it cut the afternoon a little short but we had a great time. Before he left Logan said "spending the night at Tante & Nonke's is so fun". What more can you ask for??



  1. What a fun weekend! :) Logan is so cute. What is it with these kids and their negotiations? Cohen is the same way.

  2. Looks like lots of fun! I can't wait to get my five year old on his first race. Mine would run "intensely" too. Great job kiddo!

  3. ALL in the family girl!
    I am so proud of your success, I always smile when I see your posts on FB with your milage :)

    Also, I need to give you a new badge with my new URL! (as soon as I find someone to make it and give my blog a facelift!)


  4. Logan is so cute. I love the pic when he was running. The diving pics are pretty awesome too.....Christine

  5. What a great weekend! It's easy to see that Logan certainly adds a lot of the "fun element" to your life. He is quite a character and so cute!

  6. Love it! I know you will be SURE to get him a sign next time! :-) I need to get the boys involved with me but I am always in a rush trying to get it over with.
