Babysitting, Basketball & Birthday{s} , Oh My!

These past few weeks have been exciting {& busy}, however, I keep forgetting my camera! So recently, Logan and I had the luxury of babysitting his {girl}friend, Anna Phelan for the whole day. Her parents decided to take a date to Universal Studios and we were able to play with Anna all day! The two were having so much fun! They destroyed the house within 30 seconds and decided to jump on the couch together. They also kept each other awake, not allowing the other to take a nap. Luckily they were both able to take a nap {at the same time} for about 45 minutes. This allowed me to clean the house a bit so that when they woke up, they were able to play {IE:destroy} again. Logan & Anna

The next week began the craziness that will be happening these next couple of months. Donald has been playing basketball in the local city league for the past couple of weeks. And since his parents decided to go to one of his games, I ventured along with them. Logan loved being there but wanted to get on the court and play. He kept asking me, "mama, my turn?" It was so sweet! The score was very close the entire game. Thankfully, Donald's team won at the last seconds of the game, Literally! It was a great game and I was thankful to have Donald's parents there to watch the game {& Logan} with.

The next day, was Don's birthday {Donald's father}. The week prior we were told that Don and Carrie were going out to dinner, just the 2 of them, and then us kids and grand kids would meet up at Coldstone for ice cream afterwards. On the day of, Donald called me from work and asked if I could get a babysitter for Logan for that night. All of us kids were to meet up at Red Lobster for a surprise birthday dinner. I luckily was able to find a sitter {thanks Christina!} and we were off to eat. Sadly, this had been only the second time that we have paid for a sitter for Logan and the last time we had, was for Don's birthday last year when we went to Burbank to eat at PF Changs! Logan was not happy while we were gone. Lately he has been having some separation issues and that day was one of them. Dinner was great and we were able to make it home before Logan had a melt down.

The following Tuesday was Donald's 29th birthday. {He's an old man!} We decided to again go out to eat minus Logan. We were able to drop off Logan at Donald's Parents house while we went to Olive Garden. Logan was excited to go see Papa and Grandma. He even packed his backpack to take with him. The only problem was when he realized that Mom and Dad were not staying with him. He began to cry as Donald left. When we returned an hour and a half later, he was asleep in Grandma's arms. He had been sitting on the driveway with her, waiting for us like the previous week with the babysitter. It was so sweet and cute and sad at the same time.

All in all, it has been a great 2 weeks... bring on the next 2 months!
