I was on the phone to my friend. Logan chimes in: I hate small talk.
Logan: Farting is a sign of happiness. (don't ask. I don't!)
Logan: Dad, I hunger for Macaroni and Cheese. Bryan: Your mom is bringing you home a hot dog from Costco. Logan: Oh, I really hunger for a Costco hot dog!
I was explaining to Alexis in the car the other day about a client my sister was helping. I told her that she was selling a house for this man and he had a heart attack and stroke and died unexpectedly. The tricky part was that he and his wife had been divorced for years and he had been with his girlfriend for 25 years but she legally wasn't entitled to stuff...yada yada yada...Logan pipes up, out of the blue, and says: so are you telling me that if I don't get married I'll have a heart attack and a stroke?
I asked Logan what treats he wanted to take to school for his birthday, his reply: empty calories!A new favorite is: That's akward!

When they finally caught up with him, they had to wrestle the ball away from him.
Brookie didn't like Jackson taking the ball....at all! It became her personal mission to keep the ball away from him.
The power button on our TV is right at infant/toddler height and it is a pretty blue light! This combination makes it near impossible for the average infant to resist. Mady's favorite thing to do is turn the TV off when everyone is watching it. It gets a great reaction out of the whole family, everyone begins yelling, which only makes Mady want to push the button even more! You turn it on, she turns it off. It's a great little game.
Brooklyn had a difficult time understanding the whole "wait for the siren" thing. She wanted to get going and didn't have any interest in waiting for anyone or anything.

Easter was......interesting. I suppose that's a good word for it. I worked Saturday night so I was awakened around 10:30 am by Bryan informing me that he had broken his hand. He's tired of me telling people about it so I will spare you, so I can spare his feelings. Anyhoo, our Easter was spent in the ER and taking care of a drugged-up daddy. It wasn't really what we had planned but I suppose you never really plan on breaking bones. We had a nice family day, regardless. And the Easter Bunny remembered the kids so I suppose that's the important part right? Well, aside from the Jesus part, I guess.....it's the important part for the kids...I'll just stop now.
Jackson has been a little naughty lately. I was trying to figure out the DVD player in Brooklyn's room the other day when Logan runs in and yells "Code emergency! Code emergency!" Me: "What, Logan?" Logan: "Code emergency..." Me (annoyed): "Logan, what does code emergency mean?" Logan: "Brookie is outside with Jackson." Holy crap! I run outside to find Brooklyn and Jackson across the street and down a few houses. When I yell for them, Brooklyn runs back across the street without looking and Jackson runs the opposite direction. He's lucky he is so dang cute, because if it wasn't for that little face, I would have just looked the other direction and let him keep running. Little turd.
The water levels at Shoshone Falls has been extra high for the last couple of weeks so we decided to drive down yesterday afternoon to see them. We probably live about, oh I don't know, maybe 5-7 miles away from the Falls. It took us an hour and a half just to get down there! There were soooo many people! I would love to post pictures but since I can't find my camera I took pics with my phone but I can't find the cord to my card reader to upload them. Just close your eyes and picture my cute little kids in front of a huge water fall.....see? Pretty, huh? Thought you'd like that.
That's about the extent of the excitement around here. I promise I'll post more, and hopefully visuals later!
