See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil...

So, I should definitely be going to bed instead of blogging.   Tomorrow night is Allyson's bachelorette party!  Woo hoo!  I already have my party pants on and I am wicked old and out of practice on the bachelorette scene.  I plan on rocking it out :)

Anyways, I thought I would quickly blog about a scenario that played out the other day here at the Trent house.  Brody and Logan had finished breakfast and I was still enjoying my quiet meal in the kitchen.  They were both in Brody's room "playing."  Logan yelled out to the kitchen the following VERY frightening statement...

"Mom, don't listen to us and don't come in Brody's room."

Well, I feel as though I know my boys pretty well, and the above statement is reason enough to move in a dead sprint back to Brody's bedroom.  Yes, they were doing something they weren't supposed to.  Logan had hoisted himself into Brody's crib.  This behavior is completely not acceptable.  Brody's bed is just for him - for little people only.  Logan clearly knows this - although I was somewhat relieved that no limbs were broken or there wasn't any permanent damage.  I had to try hard not to start laughing, especially since there wasn't a real serious scandal playing out...

Come one, come all, to the greatest show on earth...

Last week was a busy one at our house. See, it was Auntie Em's last week of summer. You all know the feeling - the feeling of the walls closing in, the classroom all day, and being cooped up in your desk all day long? Well, that is how she felt I can imagine. Last week we kicked off the "Auntie Em Goodbye Summer Campaign" in style.

Sunday we celebrated with birthday dinner for the Gruninger girls approximately 1 month late. Mom had quite the spread for dinner and she made LOBSTERS! I know, we couldn't believe it either. Yum-o!

Monday we left bright and early for a trip to the Fort Worth Zoo. Although we were there for a couple of hours, we didn't cover very much ground...maybe we were moving slower than normal? Either way, we had a great time.  Below is a picture of the boys with a GIANT snake.  Additionally, we took pics on the train JUST before it broke down.  Bummer!  At least we got to ride on it through the tunnel - which is Logan's favorite part :)

Thursday we went to Going Bonkers for a friend's birthday party and partied it up all right!

Finally Friday, we went to the Greatest Show on Earth - Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey Circus! It truly is the greatest show on, elephants, horses, tigers, trapeze, clowns - what more could you want in a show???

The bathroom remodel is officially complete. That's right, we have our bathroom back. I honestly have thought about sleeping in the bathtub because I have been enjoying the bathroom that much, but I thought that might be a bit out of control.

Wedding planning is almost done, we are getting geared up for Allyson's bachelorette party in a couple of weeks, then just a couple weeks until the big day! We bought Logan a little outfit to wear and we are hemming the bridesmaids dresses.

Corey gets a gold star

Well, Corey often times gets a gold star around our household.  He is truly a #1 dad in many respects.  Tonight, he is really being a trooper.  Logan was wondering if he could go camping - truly camping - in our backyard.  Much to my surprise, Corey do so TONIGHT???  We have a tiny little junior pop up tent which we won in an auction through Logan's school that they assembled then took off to sleep in for the evening.  This is shocking for many reasons.  Reason 1 - it is 100 degrees here during the day.  Now, it has cooled off quite a bit tonight, but it probably isn't really cool in that tiny space.  (Even with the 2 fans Corey purchased prior to heading out to the tent.)  Reason 2 - it is a "school night" for Corey, he has to work tomorrow.  Reason 3 - I thought for sure that Logan would be scared of the dark and not last 5 minutes out there.  (So sad for Corey - Logan was LOVING this experience!)  I suggested bringing Logan inside to sleep, Corey declined.  He and I are texting each other just feet away, but he is outside enjoying nature and I am in the AC :)  Below is a picture of Corey putting up the tent with Logan's "help."  It did turn out to be bigger than this - but I didn't get any good pictures of the finished product.

***Update: both boys came inside at 2am for a bit of "normal" sleep.  Thank goodness!  I was worried about them out there!****
