The big 27!

Logan recently celebrated his 27th birthday.... he's getting pretty old. j/k But I do remember attending his 22nd birthday so it does feel like we've been "together" a long time. Logan we love you.... I love you. You deserve to be immensely happy in life, and hopefully you are! So here's to you, the best husband, dad, son, brother, brother-in-law, son-in-law, birthday boy ever! It is always a good time when you are around.

We went to the beach and it was a PERFECT day to go. The water was warm and it was sunny and warm outside. Perfect. Afton crawled all over the place going from sea shell to sea shell. She'd pick them up tasted them and put them down. After awhile I realized she was chewing on some sea weed.... she's so sneaky and fast!

The birthday boy

My eternal companion.... lucky girl.

After the beach we went home, cleaned up and headed to Mission beach to go to Phil's BBQ. This place is great and so affordable. If your a true San Diegan you've heard of and been to Phil's. The line is always crazy long but it was well worth it to celebrate Logan's b-day.

Kris and Emily Holiday who celebrated their 3rd anniversary the day before.

Us. Doesn't my tri-tip sandwich look sooo good. It was! The french fries are fresh cut like In-N-Out.... so good.

Afton's first rib.... I'm sure you can guess that I didn't give that to her. The manager saw her and asked us for a copy of the picture... we'll have to send one.

Logan laughed when he saw I made cupcakes... why is that funny? I love cupcakes.

Singing Happy birthday. Logan said it was the worst birthday song he's ever heard... I guess we were that bad!

Blowing out the candles. The cake: chocolate with fudge frosting... his favorite.

Thank you to everyone who called and sent stuff on his birthday! He felt very loved. :) Now here's a little treat I found on our computer... some pictures from his birthdays past!


2004- 22nd birthday. It was quite the fiesta!


His birthday pinata.

While he was blind folded his mom mashed a water balloon on his head.... this is him getting her back!

No we're not dancing...not sure what were doing.



Same cake as always... chocolate cake with fudge frosting.





He's wearing the birthday present I made him. On our first date he told that when he got older he wanted to retire early and just spend his time bbq-ing while wearing a kiss the cook apron. He's got the apron no he just needs to get older and retire. :)


2005- 23rd birthday. Our nephew Sailor Shreeve was sealed to his family in the San Diego temple that day. We went to BJ's and got Logan a birthday pazookie.






2006- 24th Birthday. My family came down that Sunday from Irvine to celebrate it with us. The day before was Kris and Emily Hollidays wedding so all of Logan's Mission companions were in town. They got him a toy airplane and hostess cupcakes to celebrate.





2007- 25th Birthday. Logan's sister Kim drove down with her kids and brought his favorite cupcakes with his favorite icing. That Sunday my family drove down to celebrate.

Look how cute these boys are... getting into the trash and all sorts of mischief! :)

Ashlee wrapped her present like a bomb..... it was a CTU shirt. (from the show 24)

A family tradition



He got a remote control helicopter and couldn't wait to use it!

2008- 26th Birthday. His sister Katie planned a little surprise birthday party at a mexican restaurant. We met up with my family after dinner to see The Dark Knight. Sunday we had a dinner a little party with my fam.





Michaels lovely wrapping using supplies from work.... plastic wrap and brown packaging paper.

Slap bracelet giftcard

Killer icecream cake that I think I finished off by myself... hey, I was pregnant.



Well that was a fun little... or long walk down memory lane. He's had a lot of great birthdays! Thanks to everyone for making them special.

Ha ha ha ha. I forgot all about my superb bomb wrapping job. I kill me . . .

By the way, I have Afton's first shell (from Hawaii). It's in my room. Remind me when you come next time.

What a great post! That is so neat to look back at all those birthday memories. I feel like I know Logan much better now.
And oh my, we are so much more bonded now that I know you like Phil's. That place is AMAZING!!! We were just there a week or so ago....I can always go for some Phil's...we call it Celestial BBQ!
