Anyway, he woke up at 7:00 yesterday morning, ready to go. We had his favorite breakfast of donuts and chocolate milk waiting for him, as well as his presents from Mommy & Daddy.
After breakfast, he played with his new toys, a mega T-Rex and Stegosaurus that he hasn't stopped taking about ever since he saw them at his friend Reagan's house.
We weren't scheduled to go to our first excursion until after lunch so we had some time to kill. I took that time to go get a much-needed pedicure (hey, it helped with my sadness over him turning 5) and then Chris had to go mow a lawn. When he got back home, we left. Logan still didn't know what we were doing but we did convince him to take a nap on the way there. Once we arrived at Grapevine Mills he thought we were just going to the movies. Until we walked into the mall. Then he knew. And he was pumped. He has been to Legoland before but it was a year ago and he has been wanting to go back ever since.

He loved racing the cars down the ramps

|Checking out the stingrays from the glass floor|
|The aquarium had lots of fun kid-sized bubbles and spaces for him to get into|
|Measuring up to the sharks|
|At the touch tank, where of course he wouldn't dare touch anything|
|Playing at their playground|
When we were done at the aquarium, he was wondering what our next surprise was and he wasn't too thrilled when we told him it was his birthday dinner with the family. He wanted another "adventure." We still had a little bit of time to kill before dinner, so Chris drove to Grapevine lake and we walked around and Logan threw rocks, etc. in the water.
|This is what he did when I said "give me a handsome pose." He said this was his best handsome pose...|

I love you, Logan. Happy birthday sweet boy!
