What??? How is that even possible?? How is it that my little man who still loves to pretend to be a puppy, and still loves to cuddle, and still loves blankies be 6 already? Time is a cruel thing, yet such a happy thing.

Logan has always been a joy to have around. He lives to play with friends, to be outside, to ride his bike, and to play with Lindsay and Ryan. He loves Kindergarten and has made lots of new friends there. He loves his teacher, Mrs. Milner, and she absolutely adores him. She told us once that if she could have an entire class of Logan’s she’d be a teacher forever.

He has one of the most genuine smiles and he only uses it when he’s genuinely happy. I love how his eyes smile when his mouth does. I love his giggle. I love that when you help him wash his feet in the tub he laughs and laughs because it tickles so much. I love how much he loves being a big brother to Ryan, but also loves being a “little” brother to Lindsay. He is quickly catching up to her in height. He has become an excellent reader and I’m so proud of him for all of his hard work to get to this point.

For his birthday this year we played laser tag in our backyard. On New Year’s Eve, we went to the Provo Mall with Grandma and Grandpa Madsen for this party thing and they had laser tag there. Logan and Lindsay really enjoyed playing it and so I grabbed one of their cards when we walked away. I went to the website and saw that they bring the laser tag to you, wherever you want to play. I asked Logan if he’d want to do that for his birthday and he said, “YES!!!” So, I set it all up and we were all set.

He invited 10 friends, so there were 12 with him and Lindsay. The guy, named Josh, brought some pop-up tents to set up as obstacles to hide behind and things and they got started. He brought all different kinds of guns, explained the rules, and let them loose. It was fun to watch them running around the yard shooting at each other. Logan had a blast and that’s all that matters. Afterwards we opened presents and had cake. Grandma Snider was here visiting for the weekend to see little Summer so she got to be here for the party. Grandma and Grandpa Madsen stopped by at the end of the party for cake. We loved having all three of them here with us.

The day was spent being together and celebrating Logan’s day. The weather was perfect. Everything was perfect. We love you so much Logan!

I got some some glow sticks to stick in the cake to be lasers. I thought it was super cool!
