so Logan's real cute singing Twinkle Twinkle. He got a bit shy with the camera on, so I had to edit this. Wish me luck that it works. It was my first attempt.

Isn't it super cool? Logan clearly thinks so! Here he's standing on our "bed". Our spot was so near to the creek, we could've extended our bed out over the water. It was absolutely the most calming way to fall asleep.
After a wonderful day (and an hour at the spa down the road--thanks, honey), we headed to Creede/Little Squaw to spend the 4th with Mimi and Grandy.
On the fourth, we all went to Creede to watch the parade. It was really awesome.
There were tons of beautiful horses that always make me think of Mom. This little horse and carriage reminded me of Mom because for a while she was looking for the perfect carriage for her horse to pull.
There were antique cars that I know Dad would've loved. arrrugaa
There were clowns, which remind me Grandma.
The next day, we hung around the cabins mostly. Here Mimi is introducing Logan to deer through the window.
The Long family had one heckuva Fourth of July. Thanks to Mimi and Grandy for having us to the cabins. We enjoyed our visit and miss you already.
First, they went and played at Uncle Johnny's and Aunt Angela's. They had so much fun. John sent me the cutest video of Logan playing with their cat. Due to "technical difficulties", I can't upload the adorable stuff we got with them. Here's two second cousins playing in their pool, though. Jessica saved the day by "swinging by" to grab up my clan. She brought Victoria, so the kids enjoyed some fun in the sun. (Thanks again, Jess!)
Next, Micah was off to see Lollie and GPops. They had invited all the family over for a delicious brunch, so everyone could meet Logan. Lots of family came. Micah said he had a great time catching up with everyone. The Blackburn boys sure have grown up, and Micah enjoyed chatting with them. Aunt Tricia came and Kayleigh who Logan enjoyed playing with. I loved watching the videos with all you guys and sure was sad to miss out on all the fun!
Next stop was a quick visit in Hempstead to see Dada and Wanda. They sure do love Logan, although I'm not so sure their dog does ;-)
Then, the boys went to Bertram to see Grandma and Grandpa. Logan had so much fun with Grandma's puppies.
He also had a wonderful time exploring the land. He saw his first tarantula and was so at home he fell asleep on the Cub (the 4 wheeler Mom has to manage her land).
Then, Micah and Logan went to Dripping Springs where he spent lazy days by Mimi's and Grandy's pool. Logan had a great time playing with Grandmommie, the cousins, Aunt Hollie and Uncle John.
Cameron was such a natural at watching after Logan, Micah tells me we're trading babysitting for a day on the mountain! Any time, Cameron! Well... you might want to wait until winter ;-)
At some point, Micah got to sneak away to surf behind Ian's boat. The boys had fun together. Wish I was there, but I'm glad they got some time just the two of 'em. I've got a great pic of Micah ridin' the waves, but I can't find it. If I do, I'll upload it later.
And here Logan is at the end of the trip, helping Grandmommie clean like a good little mini-Micah. :-D The boys also got to hang out with Eric, who was able to sliver out a little bit of time between work and studies.

Logan's birthday was the perfect excuse to throw a nice little party. I miss so many of our friends and family. With the hustle and bustle of parenthood, we never seem to make time to spend with those most important to us. We love you all and are so thankful that you took time out of your schedules to be with us!
The Moms came to town for the occasion, which was a really awesome visit. I've been missing MommieToo, and it was really wonderful getting to see her. She had quite the magic touch with Maddox. She gave Heather the best present of all time - the night shift! She also was instrumental in getting Maddox to sleep longer stints through the night, so I know Sis is super thankful for her mommie touch. Lollie stayed with us. It was great getting to visit. She dotes on Logan (and the Vaughan kids) so much. She has made them some really incredible outfits. I can't wait to post pics of Logan in his Easter outfit!
The second weekend of April, we got to celebrate baby Culligan with Monica's baby shower. I had a really great time hosting her wonderful friends and some of our co-workers at her beautiful home down in Littleton. Lots of fun. Thanks to all who helped!
