Mason was so nice and let mom and dad in on some photos.And if none of these photos have you convinced of how cute Mason is, check out this hilarious video of him here. This was a great place to take pictures and I definitely want to go back again with Logan when he doesn't look so much like a wild child and get some photos.
Make sure you watch Chuck tonight. My favorite geek on tv.

Since the last post, Tad is totally in full swing of school so I hardly see him. Since he's at school all the time the rest of his time is spent working with his dad and he is now working on Saturdays. So we haven't been up to any new adventures because he's always working.
Logan has learned lots of new tricks and I'll post more about that tomorrow on his 11 month birthday.
So a week ago we went to the fair. I mostly wanted to go to see if Logan would like the animals and I could get a picture of the Ferris wheel. We met up with Aisha & The Dentist and Jared & Debbie. It was definitely entertaining. We watched some square dancers and one of the guys had his camelbak rigged so it was holding an oxygen tank that he was wearing while dancing. Nice.This next shot I should have been paying more attention to what was behind us. I just thought cool, take our picture in front of this ride. Here is the Ferris wheel.
Logan was so tired by the time we got to see the animals that he just sat there. I'm sure he's too young still. Maybe more fun next year and more people watching.
