Thanks for the JEEP Uncle Travis:)

My boys toys

So Logan got a new toy in the mail a few days ago. My brother Travis came home on a visit from Iraq in june and he wanted to get a Logan a Jeep for his birthday before he had to go back. My mom (so she thought) talked him out of it becasue is was to expensive, so he got him a little drum toy instead. But what my mom didn't know is when he got back to Iraq he decided he was going to get him one anyways. So this is what arrived in the mail. Logan is so excited he has wanted to ride it everyday since he got it. Thats all he ever talks about is when do I get to go out and ride my jeep. He is getting pretty good at riding it. There is a screw on the shifter and if you take it out it makes it go faster so we finally took it out because he figured out how to steer it and when to stop. He rides it pretty good. It was so cute the day he got it he was riding it around the yard and he decided he was going to take his pretend groceries in the house, on his way back out he is carrying a towel with him so I asked him what he was doing and he said he was going to wash his jeep because it was dirty, he walked over to it and started wiping it off with his rag after a few minutes of cleaning his jeep off he looks at me and say's Mom will you go get me that stuff you spray on the tires. (tire shine) haha. I thougt that was the cutest thing.
We Love you Travis and we hope you stay safe and come home soon. We miss you:(

Here is one of the many videos we have recorded of him and his jeep.

So last weekend we decided to go up to woodland to collect firewood. Logan ended up playing with his cousin Westin on the swing/deer hanger that Cody just got done making. We had a lot of fun. I enjoy going up to woodland and just hanging out. It is so quiet and peaceful up there. We were up there for half of the day collecting firewood and getting ready for winter to come, We usually wait until the last minute and end up in 3 feet of snow trying to cut down trees so this year we decide we were going to get an early start so we wouldn't have to freeze while cutting wood. We saw a couple of buck on the way up there and on the way home we saw a really pretty rainbow, I took a picture of it on my cell phone so ill have to download it to the computer and post it on here one of these next few days. When we got up to woodland Joey's grandma and grandpa were up there so we visited with them for a few minutes, Grandma pushed Logan on the swing and took a few pictures and than they were on there way. Logan had fun collecting rocks and cutting branches down with his fake sword. I had fun piling wood up into the truck and next to the cabin, Joey's dad was up there helping us get wood. I am so grateful that Joey has such great parents and that they are willing to help out whenever they can. His dad was a big help I appreciate all that they do for us.
