Summer So Far...

We have yet to do our Gulf Shores vacation, and with all these doctors appointments, I think it is going to be post-poned until winter! However, I believe that this has been a very memorable summer for Logan. There have been quite a bit of *firsts*.

This was the FIRST time ever that Logan visited an amusement park...we took a mini-vacation to Holiday World (where I used to go EVERY.SINGLE.SUMMER as a child).
He had a blast! His favorite part was the "Wildebeest" which is their new water-rollercoaster! He is so brave! He also LOVED watching the dive show. I am pretty sure when he gets older he is going to live by the ocean so he can work/play in it 24/7!
It was SO HOT there, but with the drink stations (that are FREE) set up all over the place, we were ALWAYS hydrated!

Another FIRST that Logan got to do was meet my Grandma Wright...his great grandma for the first time! We went down to Evansville to celebrate her 90th birthday! I just pray that I will be as amazing as she is when I turn 90 (if I make it that long! Ha!).
On our way home Logan was exhausted...we went through a horrible storm with wind, rain, and awful lightening and he slept through ALL of it!
Then it was 4th of July (my FAVORITE holiday!) and we did Chinese Lantern's for the FIRST time...Logan loved it! It was pretty neat if I do say so myself!
He had fun with the snap-pop things and LOTS of sparklers (and you KNOW I was right there making sure nobody was getting burned or careless!).
We actually met some friends of ours in Huntington this year. The fireworks were so much better there than in Fort Wayne! The show lasted 40 mins as opposed to our 15 min max here in FW!
Logan has also spent A LOT of time at the ballpark with us...His big sister Emily is playing baseball for the first time this year...and although it has been H-O-T, it has been SO MUCH FUN!

We also watched the space shuttle launch and return for the last time...and he was SO into it. I love that my boy LOVES history,and also learning how and why things work, etc!

Then we ALL got sick...FOR A WEEK STRAIGHT. Logan ended up with double ear infections, bronchitis, and a sinus infection ALL AT ONCE. It was horrible and I cannot remember the last time that we were hit with something this nasty! He literally slept 3 days straight! glad we are all better!
While sick, we had to sit in the hospital for 48 hours straight with Emily to have her 48 hour EEG. This was to make sure she is seizure-free and the meds are doing their job! It was amazing bc they all slept A LOT, and had Logan been healthy, I am not sure if either one of us would have survived 48 hours straight in a tiny hospital room. Ha! :D

We have had lots of playdates with the cousins...recently Logan decided that Nayomie needed to play with play-doh! It was so cute! They all played so sweetly together (even if she did eat a little!).

We also took a spur of the moment trip to the airport to watch the airplanes take-off and land. The kids love this! It was sooooo HOT! But completely worth the joy on their faces when one flew right over them! We did timed relay races in the meantime while waiting. There is never a dull moment!

We attended the Zoo's "Member's Only Picnic." We walked through the zoo and it was so hot there that even the alligator was in his pool, which we have never seen...he is usually out sunbathing!

Icy - The Fort Wayne Komet's Hockey mascot was also there!
Honestly...our summer has been fun and full of adventure! I think this is my first summer since I have been a stay at home mom and been able to FULLY ENJOY all that life with my kiddos has to offer! I am so blessed and love each one of them so, so, so much!

With all of the health issues between Logan and Emily -- I am so glad that I decided to be a stay at home mom. Even though our summer has been packed with doctor's appointments, therapy appointments, and specialists...we have still managed to enjoy eachothers company!

Hope you all are having a great week!


P.S. Logan goes to see the Neurologist on the 12th... I know we won't know anything on that exact day, but it's getting closer!
