Certain family members have brought it to my attention that I have been a bit lax lately concerning significant blog posting. They have accused me of only putting stuff on twitter/facebook **cough**DAD**cough**.
So, in an effort to appease these individuals, I present you with
KID-CENTRIC MULTIMEDIA EXTRAVAGANZA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The past few weeks have been really good, kid wise. Logan is DARN close to being potty trained, which is awesome. Also, Tyler has recently developed an addiction to Wii Sports Resort, which makes me so so proud. The only thing about it is that he drives us NUTS asking to play the dang thing. All the time “Dad… when can I play my game?”
But, it makes me happy to see the genes run true. Logan may also have “the gift” as well. We took some video of them playing Wii together. Logan is the star here as he has a unique full body technique when playing Wii that we thought was pretty funny. Behold:
This past weekend, Mandy and I heard about this thing called the All Ohio Hot Air Balloon Festival. Basically, it was this festival thing up in a town called Marysville where the main event was the launching of a bunch of hot air balloons. The drive was about 45 minutes and it wasn’t too expensive, so, we decided to take the boys.
We kept it a secret from them for quite a while. However, Tyler was starting to get really excited as we were driving in cause he kept seeing vans with hot air balloon baskets on the back of them. So, we caved in and told him where we were going. It wasn’t really crowded at all, so we got pretty good seats. Logan liked to use the seats to scope things out.
Before long, we could see lots of balloons getting ready to go. Once they were ready, they just started taking off. This one was Mandy’s favorite (its pink!!). This one flew right over the top of us. Before long, there were TONS of them in the air. I think in all, around 20 balloons launched in the space of 30 minutes or so. It was really neat. Tyler, for his part, totally freaked out. Logan didn’t care all that much, but Tyler thought this was the coolest thing he’d ever seen. For proof, just watch the videos below:
So, all in all, it’s been a good couple weeks. We had a lot of fun at the balloon thing. Thanks for reading.
